How much is a mold. Or to make some. I have a stock hood for a mold. Or a fiberglass hood. It needs work. I could use another hood.

I was in high school when I tried to copy my Land Cruiser hood by covering it with food wrap, then fiberglass and resin. I couldn't get the fiberglass to follow the contour of the hood. Now you would bag the thing and vacuum. So it might be worth a shot.

I have a friend who worked in a glass shop for a few years then designed and built TT bodies for $25- $30,000. The client got the molds and a couple sets of glass. I'll see what he has to say.
I did find a set of J10 molds, but they aren't on the West Coast.

i seen this at the Jump champ.
That would be cool. Retro. There are a bunch of Honcho. Wagoneers coming out. I think it would be worth investing my time into it.
Thank you.
Keep those pics coming of the Wagoneer.

His reply:

Usually it's two to three times the cost of the hood because you make it at least 3 times thicker than the hood. For example if the cost of the hood is $200 times it by two or three to be in the ballpark. If you're only going to pull a couple hoods out of the mold then you can make it light Duty. If you're going to produce a lot of it then you would need to make it heavy duty.
