I have several fiberglass hoods for JD 110 and JD 112's that need to be repaired.
had to find a good hood to made a mold from
a guy I know just got a JD 140 and the hood is good
he let me use it to make a mold from
so this is how I did it
put glad wrap on the hood then use spray foam over the glad wrap
it worked but had a lot of bubbles in the foam.
so I had to think what could I do.
so I started again
put glad wrap on the hood and paper mached the hood, then dried for ta few days then sprayed foamed it while it was still on the hood.
that was a lot better - nice smooth mold
now time to test the mold
cleaned a hood and sanded the hood for fiberglassing
put wax paper on the areas of the mold that I am going to repair the hood
clamped the mold to the hood that needs to be fixed.
then started fiberglassing, after a day I removed the mold and it look okay, but now I have sum sanding to do
have some air holes that will need to be pudded with bondo.
for my first fiberglass repair job - it will work - not the best job - need more practice
sanding and bondo will help
I will get some pictures of the mold and a hood that I fixed
