I just fixed an eight inch long crack with a product designed for fixing automotive plastics, (bumpers). It is made by SEM and comes in a two part epoxy. It's really easy to use and hardens in about 20 minutes.

as any local parts dealer for a flexible bumper repair kit should be less than 20 bucks and it works the best out of anything be sure to reinforce it with the webbing that it comes with

Well, a drill and zip ties work nicely for me. Just drill on opposite sides of the crack, drill a hole at the end to stop it from spreading, and stitch 'er up. It's just not worth it to me to try and do a bunch of bodywork if you're just going to dump it down the mtn again. Eventually, it will happen.

Befor you use the two part epoxy you will want to drill a hole at the end of the crack first.

This will help stop the crack from continuing on its path. You can purchase the epoxy just about anywhere but the good stuff will cost more and you will need to find it at a autobody supplier.

A nice urethane epoxy, the one i use is a duramix costs about $80 bucks a tube but it is more then enought to fix about 5-10 cracked hoods. The type is a duramix 4040, 4041.

I have always used the zip-tie method on my old sled. Just get zip ties to match the hood color and they are hardly notice able. They hold extemely well and it stops the crack from spreading. good luck with it.

If you're willing to take the time, I've had excellent results by fiberglassing the cracks, the cloth reinforcement ensures the cracks won't reappear again. This is probably the most expensive repair, though. I've always had the hood repainted after the repair, it looks exactly like new when finished.
