    One of my backglasses has a big crack running down it, what would be the best way to repair this?

    Mylar on the back?

    That stinks. If anything, I would say full Mylar on the front. On the back it will/can lift the paint off the glass.

    I have had some pins with wide clear shipping tape put on the back to stabilize things. It looks awful on the back, but the front looks fine and at this point you are really just looking for a salvage, the crack is never going away.

    It will for sure. I have a BK2K backglass in very good condition, except someone mylared the back of it. It was a bad idea because it has pulled some of the paint off the glass, but it's still intact.
