Default '41 ford pickup- dented top

the top of my '41 pickup cab had been dented, bondo, painted with lacquer but has tiny spider-cracks. Paint remover did not cut the lacquer. I've sanded the lacquer-bondo areas smooth; will the tiny spider-cracks come apart?
What should I do?

thanks for your partcipation,
fordman

You need some good aircraft paint remover from an auto paint store, expensive but works and will burn your hands. What is sold in the big box stores is useless.

Using paint stripper on paint over bondo will soak into the bondo. Never heard lacquer being that hard to remove. Cracks are probably an old paint job. May be better with the sanding off the paint, if just the roof.
