Light Weight Bodies
are a racer, 1/4 mile - mud bog - or monster truck, our light weight bodies have several
great advantages over steel.
First off, many of the classic bodies we produce, can no longer be found a
reasonable prices. For example - rust free Mustang fastback, Corvettes & '55-'57
Chevy's now range in price from $10 to $40K dollars. A new fiberglass body will cost
you thousands less.
When building a race vehicle you obviously want it as light as possible. So
you cut out the floor pan - wheel wells & inner structure.....So as far as the body
all you are left with is an overweight, floppy shell held together with old factory spot
welds and body lead. Our bodies are manufactured from extremely complex molds -
which produce a rigid one piece unit. The roof, quarters & firewall are
generally stiffened with the use of internal ribbing. In addition, your all new
glass body can be made heavier or lighter (within reason) depending on your application.
Average body weight is about 100#'s
As far as body work, you need to scuff off the mold flashing - block sand - prime
and paint. The great part about owning a rigid glass body - is that you'll never
have to worry about rust and future body work. Once you apply your paint scheme
that's it - just wash and wax.
Installation is a snap! Whether you are installing just the body or an entire
package, the bodies attach at the rocker panels, tail pan, trunk jam, door jam, and front
and rear window jams. We also offer fiberglass wheel tubs, which can be glassed
directly to your new body. (This is done by the installer).
The fiberglass allows you to be creative - the roof can easily be chopped and the
bodies can easily be cut and sectioned for custom applications. (Done by the installer)
Door skins and front ends can be easily glassed together for a simple one piece
Lastly, the bodies are strong - straight - and reliable. They are light
weight and will improve your appearance, E.T.s and overall outlook on the vehicle.
Due to the size of our full bodies we do not ship them. They are sold on a
PICK UP ONLY basis and the customer must either Pick it up at our facilities or arrange
for Pick up.
