I have a beautiful Hot Tip and the backglass is amazing. I got real close to it just now and noticed these tiny cracks. There is no flaking. Should I triple thick it? Mylar? Nothing? I really really don't want to mess up this glass as this is my favorite EM ever!

If it's cracked all the way through the paint and the cracks are visible on the back side, I *might* try a few drops of loctite liquid super glue if it looks like things are loose. Otherwise, I'd leave it alone.

I would certainly not seal it or use tape. That's for only when the backglass is seriously deteriorating.

Some spider cracking in the paint is normal due to the age of the backglass.
