    Default Hood for a New Holland TC45D

    The lower front part of my TC45D hood, is broken off and a new hood is over $2,000. It is made of firberglass and I think it would be difficule to mold one with the 3-dimensional curves. If I could find a used hood or a partially damaged hood it would help. Any suggestions?

    If you have all the pieces it should be fairly east to repair. Grind off the jell coat on the outside and wire brush the inside. Use a slow setting Epoxy and heavy cloth. I have done a fair amount of glass work and it is not real hard to do. Work carefully and you can have a near perfect look.

    Take it to your local body shop and see what they would charge to repair and repaint it. What caused it to brake,
