Maybe he has a plastic welder and needs pieces that are properly colored?  That's my best guess.




Hi-- I am looking for broken pieces off of a John Deere lawn/ garden tractor plastic hood-- small ///larger/// flat/// curved.... any size. Does not matter what model it is from. Only plastic. 

(Not interested in anything with the fiberglass style hoods).

Let me know what you may have.

There are an aweful lot of those out there with broken hoods. A guy could make good money repairing them?

You can actually plastic weld them to be even stronger than before. For the auto body class im taking I've been practicing with one. I took In a broken side shield from a Cyclops model cub cadet and was learning how to plastic weld and reinforce it as well. It ended up being more durable than the rest of plastic. But what's nice about them is they're capable of just about anything with plastic involved. You can do car dashes, atv fenders, and dashes as well. My teacher prefers the glue but learning to do it with a welder takes more skill but is well worth it.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology.  We have the capability to make the world's first bionic tractor.  Better than it was before, better, stronger, faster...
