Classic mini cooper sunroof cracks :(

Hello, you guys I've got a question and need some of your advice... There's a crack around the sunroof of my classic mini cooper, it's not all the way around but will be eventually, which I want to prevent. How can I keep that from happening and to fix it?

looks like it was painted and masked off rather than removing the sunroof and rubber trim. Might as well start looking at areas around door handles and other areas where you think they didn't take parts off.

Henry's right, that is all it is, a build up of paint because the top was re-painted without removing the sun roof. Now, that isn't to say that there isn't damage there and there is filler and paint, but it looks like simply normal old paint build up.

Now, when a car with a sun roof gets hit hard front or rear the roof will often buckle right at the corners of the sun roof, so there could be a little more here than just paint.
