Cracks on End Caps

We are redoing the interior on 1990 29" Excella, and just notices some hairline cracks on the end caps!!
What should I use to either fill them before I paint them?

Thanks,

I had hairline cracks in the upper corners of the rear cap on each side of the cabinet.

Remove the overhead cabinet and fiberglass the cracks from behind. If you support things so the crack is minimal while glassing i would not attempt to do any more on the outside because of color matching.

I had to cut a wedge section in the sheet metal ends of the cabinet to get it back in place once the fiberglass set up. I cut and installed a false panel at each end to cover the cut metal.
