I found a small stress crack in my hood on my 91 RXL between the top 2 vents in the center of the hood. What is the best way to fix this from the underside? I have been told that fiberglass will not stay for long because of the type of plastic used to make the hood.

Please help!!!

By that i am assuming you mean drill the holes, and almost "stitch" it together right?

I did a few repairs on a hood and used that stuff. For $50.00, it worked great.

Thanks for the info...I am sure I will not be doing the rivit or zip tie method as I do not want it to stand out. I guess I'll call the dealer to find out what material the hood is made out of and get the right bonding agent.

How big of an area is it? If it is just say a few inches; I would drill a small 1/8" hole at the very ends of the fracture. Then I would fiberglass that area extending an inch or two beyond the fracture.

-OR-

Take it to a plastic welder who knows what he's doing.
