I've searched and also searched under the username "Tha Driver" and couldn't find anything. I have cracks around the sunroof on the roof. Some look pretty deep. What is the proper way to repair those? Or could you give me a link about repairing them. Thanks

No, not nearly as many or as bad, but something like that.

That is caused by water getting through cracks in the paint and expanding the SMC plastic. You need to grind out all the loose stuff, fill with SMC compatible filler, and prime and paint just like anywhere else. The sunroof has to come out, because you need to seal the entire plastic surface or it will just happen again. Make sure the top is very dry before you fill it.
