The ULTIMATE John Deere hood!!!

Can anyone help identify what model it might fit? I assure you... There are no identifying marks on it whatsoever.
Still needs a little finishing and patchwork, but talk about potential!
FINALLY - the solution to those bulky fiberglass/plastic junk hoods John Deere used!

A work of art like this deserves a close up.

Re: The ULTIMATE John Deere hood!!!

Is that carbon fiber?

Looks close to the top portion off stx series, just missing the sides and front pieces.

Yeah or the 110 round fender.

Or part of the 285, again missing side pieces

You wouldn't happen to know where I could find a carbon fiber 318 hood would you? It would be neat for a hot rod 332 project I'm thinking about.

Re: The ULTIMATE John Deere hood!!!

I've gotta think they have to come from somewhere. If they're a molded fiberglass part, no reason they can't load it with carbon fiber and shoot epoxy rather than glass and polyester or vinylester, I suppose. If it's injection molded plastic or compression molded SMC, you're hosed. This tool was set up for resin transfer molding, but may have been capable of vacuum infusion.

They're fiberglass like the round fender hood you pictured.

You know I think you're right but you have to admit it looks a bit like a round fender hood.

Re: The ULTIMATE John Deere hood!!!

I was "assured" it was a deere hood. I googled a couple pics and suspect it to be a 110 or 112 unit.
