fine crack fix in canopy paint?

Have a trex 800 canopy with a couple of fine line cracks int he paint, its not all the way through the fiberglass. is there an easy fix? I was thinking maybe clear nail polish, thin CA? Freakin thing is brand new and I dont want it to get worse. The cracks are on top in the middle of the curved cut out. there from flexing back and forth.....

TIA, Dave

On my, much smaller, 450 canopies I put clear tape on the inside of the canopy over the crack to keep it from getting worse. Maybe there's something equivalent for your 800, maybe wider clear tape with the string threads in it. I think the string thread tape would work better for mine even.

Of course your 800 canopy is probably a lot thicker than mine anyway.
