Heavy Duty Bodies & Cabs

Light Weight Bodies & Cabs

Heavy Duty Bodies & Cabs are manufactured as straight as possible.   Our bodies are manufactured from extremely complex molds - which produce a rigid one piece unit.  The floor, 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 or cab  weight is anywhere from 125# to 600#' depending on make and model.  Our bodies are manufactured from extremely complex molds - which produce a rigid one piece unit.  
The floor, roof, quarters & firewall are generally stiffened with the use of internal ribbing.   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 .  Once you apply your paint scheme that's it - just wash and wax.
 
Installation takes time!!  Whether you are installing just the body or an entire package, the bodies must be through bolted to your original frame.  For more detailed information please check out the truck cab install link here -   Click for Cab Installation  - While we understand that your project may or may not be a  truck, the basics of installation ARE the same.
When building a race vehicle you obviously want it as light 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.
Light Weight bodies and cabs  have NO floor or interior panels, windows come blanked in.  These bodies are designed for competition use only.  Glass bodies & cabs can be made heavier or lighter (within reason) depending on your application.   Average body weight is anywhere from 40# to 120# depending on make and model.

  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.
