    That crack will just get bigger. You should pass on it JMO.

    Just put a 5/8 washer then like a 1' washer and your poly will be fine. You can also take a couple peices of 1' flat bar about 3" long and bolt it across the back through the poly with 1/4 bolts to stop the poly from spreading.

    Pull the bolt out and push the pieces together, drill a 1/8" hole at the end of the crack. Vee the crack out with 36 grit sand paper front and back,and the surrounding areas. Get some 3M Automotive panel bonding adhesive from a local body shop, fill the grooved area and build up 1-2" out around the crack, get some fiberglass screen and push into the adhesive both front and back side and coat with more panel bonding adhesive, let it dry over night, sand face smooth with 80 & 100 grit sand paper, clean and paint.

    Panel bonder is good for 40,000 psi tensile strength. I use the stuff all the time, works great to fix plow ligths, it is a bit pricy $40 a cartridge, but any local body shop worth there salt will have the stuff.

    Good luck
