repairing fiberglass hood

Going to be doing a repair to this 2004 Cobra hood that I will be swapping onto a 2001 GT. I got it reasonably cheap, but it needs some work. For the area pictured, I was thinking of laying glass over the GT's hood to make a mold, and then pulling a part to splice into the damaged hoods leading edge. I'd trim the patch to a smooth edge, trace it to the hood, cut the hood to match the patch and remove damaged area, feather meeting edges of hood and patch glue/duraglas patch in place then lay several laters of matt into the feathered area. Let cure several days to settle in and then grind flat, poly prime and repaint. Not sure if this hood is actually fiberglas or SMC, or what the two materials might do in heat and sun. Since its a hood it'll need to stay flat. Any recomendations?
