    2005 RXT SC 215 - Paint Cracking!

    I've tried to find other threads...but I just bought a used 05 RXT. Runs great. But I noticed that there are "spider-web" cracks in the paint on the nose, just above the SEA DOO rubber bumper. They are spreadking along the bumper, but not toward the windshield. But it looks like water is now getting under the craks and they are starting to lift a bit. What to do? Can I seal it and forget it since it isn't really an eye sore? Or should I leave it alone? It seems as if it might crack and get worse if I don't at least seal it somehow. BTW...I can turn a wrench, but paint is NOT my thing. Thanks, all.

    I don't know if it was ever it...very possible as it is right in the front and just above the bumper.

    It is factory paint. That's the gold-ish silver that came on the 2005 RXT SC. It looks like post impact to me as well...I just bought it - USED and the guy I got it from said it was like that when he got it. He also said it hasn't spread.

    So what should I do? nothing? take it to a "body shop" to have them repair it? I'm worried that it will spread.
