Unless they're really making you crazy, I might be tempted to just leave the spider cracks. They're not going to hurt anything. Boats have spider cracks like that and go for MANY years without further damage. It's nothing structural.
Well the truth is that they ( the spider cracks) are driving me crazy! The paint and finish on the rest of the rig is immaculate. So this really stands out to me and also everytime is see the cracks I just cringe!!!
And also I get upset everytime I see it because I am reminded that I am the knuclekhead that did the damage in the 1st place!
SO they must be fixed!
