Not really sure but only tip I can give you is you will need to rough up the surface.

Is there a reason for laminating other than acheiving a thicker piece?
Just buy it thicker to start with? Not sure what you are trying to do?

Sorry I was not very plain.I have a balsa crankbait that I caved and I want it to go deeper.I don't want to remove the existing lip because I really see a mess trying to get it out.I thought I might be able to make a larger lip and fit it to the original.Also ,maybe one could make a 2 pc lip with a slot on the under one,to allow for the forward lead,and wire line tie.

I dont know what you could do that would give you the strength you are needing. Lexan is made to flex....any flexing that would occur would probably break the adhesive. Lexan can be formed into shapes with a consistent temp of around 300 degrees. See Lapala...he may have more ideas and more experience with this....

I have removed lips before using a small cut off wheel on my Dremel. If you be careful and take you time it works well. I did it once and didn't even have to repaint.
