FD RX-7 dry carbon hood
Designed with full function and maximum performance in mind. The hood is constructed of 100% aerospace grade high strength carbon fiber infused with a UV stable epoxy resin allowing for a precise and optimum fiber to resin ratio for the ultimate low weight part. Combined with a titanium latch striker this hood comes in at only 8lbs 14 oz.
Meticulous care is always taken to ensure the weave pattern is as straight and undistorted as possible in the layup. The dry fabric is then vacuum pressed and held under deep vacuum pressure until a perfectly leak free seal is confirmed to prevent any air intrusion or voids into the finished part. This also provides a nice, flat pressed surface finish seen only on performance based parts. After the mold is confirmed to be leak free it is then infused with a UV stable resin that is designed not to yellow or fade from the sun. After the part is cured, they are then scuffed and clear coated with a UV protective automotive grade clear coat for added protection from the sun and weather. Because it is a normal automotive clear coat there is nothing to chip or crack like typical gel coated "carbon" parts.
