Making a 'glass hood

Hi All,

I've got 'glass front fenders and extensions for my '47 Ford, but nobody makes a hood. My hood is in "OK" shape, but I'd like to make a 'glass hood and bond it all together into a one piece frontend. Goes without saying the hood's "bodywork" will finished and in primer before the next step.

My plan is to build a surround from 1 x 12's with a plywood floor that is a couple of inches larger than the hood. Then I can mount the hood in this box and fill the voids with high density urethane foam. When I remove the hood, I'll have a female mold.

What I'd like to do next is fill in the center "bulge" in the urethane mold so as to make the new 'glass hood smooth. What would I use for this?

What to use to prevent the hood from sticking to the urethane?

How many layers will I want to put down?

Any guesses as to how much resin and matt I'll need?

How would I go about bonding this all together into one piece?

Thanks!

Russ
