I have a John Deere LT133 and the lower part of the hood broke on both sides. A new part is quite expensive (over $500). I was unable to glue the pieces back together because I could not find a glue that will adher to the plasitic used in the hood. However, I was able to fiberglass the broken pieces together using a cheap Bondo kit for very little expense. I placed a small piece of wood on the back side of the piece, secured the pieces by screwing them to the wood and then fiberglassed the pieces together. It remains to be seen how long the repair will last but it seems to be very strong.
