Roof won't stop cracking, even after sealed

1934 Ford Coupe Choptop filled-in roof Bondo keeps cracking over door post where bolt goes through and connects to the wood roof. Wood roof is cracked/broke and is in bad shape. COULD THAT BE CAUSING MY ROOF TO KEEP CRACKING? Resin is very thick where crack is. Is there any kind of glue or resin that can fix this? Any information or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Claude can you post some photos? It sounds like it's moving and no amount of resin is going to help and resin alone doesn't do anything anyway for strength, you need mat or cloth.

But this car is metal or fiberglass? I assume it's metal being it has wood in it? If it's fiberglass, reinforcing the crack properly is what is needed I am thinking.

But without photos this is all pretty much guessing.
