MadCity,
 
When dealing with Gelcoat and fiberglass, stress cracks are common.  There is some flex not common in metal.  The one in picture is not major.  Having owned several vettes I am somewhat familiar with them.  There was a post on another forum from a 179 owner who had stress cracks fixed by FR.  When in doubt check with your dealer or service provider.

I have a hairline stress crack in the back of our 2018 176T. Is this something I should be worried about? Or is that considered "normal" wear?
