Premium Body Materials Advanced CompositesThe quality, performance, AND durability you require, that no other body company can offerPremium Body Materials Advanced Composites PhotosAdvanced composites blends are made with the same manufacturing processes as carbon fiber for similar performance, without the added costs.

Precision Weight Control:
» 
Up to 47% weight savings over standard fiberglass composite panels
» Parts made with the tightest weight tolerances

Strong:
» 
Tremendous shear (tear) resistance
» Zero surface deflection at high speeds

Flawless Finish:
» 
All panels are made with a smooth inner surface
» Buffed to an excellent surface finish and wrapped for ultimate protection

Environmentally Sound:
» 93% reduction in harmful emissions during the manufacturing process.
» All parts are manufactured in our clean EPA environmentally compliant facility

Don't be fooled by false claims about other "light weight" hoods and roofs

Our Exclusive Blend:
» Others try to mimic the fabrics we use, but they fail to live up to our superior manufacturing process that makes our products the very best

They Reduce Material Use:
» This results in a flimsy part that will not hold its shape at high race speeds. These parts require more bracing which results in unneccessary additional weight
