Hello all!

So I've had this crack that began as a small one back in 2005 on my door where the mirror mounts right at the seam where the door meets the fender (pics coming soon) and over the years it has only grown with the door being opened and closed constantly. Being too lazy to think of something smart to do to fix it for now, instead of getting water in my door everytime I wash the car, I come to you guys to see if you have any suggestions.

The only thing I've thought about doing has been to put it back together with some strong epoxy as I don't want to get into painting anything yet.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

Yeah for a quick fix, id try some sort of epoxy and go easy on it so too much doesnt squeeze out.
Also check out your door hinges and make sure you lube them up. when they get resisting, you end up flexing the door more to open and close it, and this could be making unneeded strees on the door.
