grind into the crack slightly creating a v shape. You then can get some two part epoxy (either for plastic or fiberglass wichever you'rs is) then apply it into the crack sand filler and prime. If the crack is all the way through you can scuff the back and apply some epoxy back there als for added strength

Also, at each end of the crack drill a 1/8" hole to stop the crack from spreading before applying any epoxy or body filler.

GORNO is absolutely 100% right. No matter how much prep and filling and sanding you do if you do not stop the crack its not a job well done. Remember the job is only as good as its weakest link.
