I have a 1996 Polaris Transport that I purchased with a damaged hood. I've tried repairing the cracks with fiberglass from the back side of the hood but the resin doesn't dry between the plastic hood and the fiberglass mesh. The side exposed to the air dries but the other side stays sticky. Is there anything I can use to repair my hood? Thanks.
fiberglass doesnt stick to the plastic composite hoods, it will peel off in time, the best fix I have found is a 2 part epoxy you can buy at wal-mart, hardware stores, or most any auto parts store called "plastic Welder" as mentioned its a a 2 part epoxy that dries to a light cream color.
To repair the crack, drill a small hole at the end of the crack (stops the crack from running any further) V out the crack line with a dremel tool, then fill back in with plastic welder epoxy, cures in half an hour, can be sanded and painted. This stuff is best i have found, I have fixed many hoods with it, in fact I have a spare hood I am working right now I am going to fix and put on my sled.
