I feel good this morning. A little sore but OK. Working on the hood; I had to make wire clips to hold some of the plastic in place. At left is a blowup of the clip and below is the actual size of the clip; I have to drill holes in the plastic. I will bend the legs to hold the plastic in place. In some places the glue is not holding still; the clip will hold the plastic in place while I mend the plastic.
The hood will look like this when I am done. I just patching the cracks; it was cracked really bad.
Lawn tractor before the big cracks.
