stress cracks in paint


Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1987; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 122,500;

John,I have what appear to be slight stress cracks on the insode edges of my front fenders, as they curve down near the hood. Now here's the interesting thing...they are near the strut towers, or in the general area, and I just had a strut-tower brace installed. My guess is that the fenders are now flexing becuase the towers are now very rigid due to the new brace. Your opinion? Have you ever seen this before? And how bad will things get due to these cracks? As I said, they are slight, and seem to look like a thin "cloudy" line. Can they be hidden?John
