I have done a ton of body work but have never messed with carbon fiber, but if its anything like fiberglass i think it would work just fine. I Really like that hood, i need one like that! lol

Fixing carbon fibre is very tricky. If the cracks are past the resin then they will likely get deeper. Otherwise you might get away with it.
