We mold our own bodies, utilizing our 30 years experience in the fiberglass industry. Our vast experience allows us to offer bodies in kevlar and kevlar-carbon fiber, bodies are so well aligned that we remove all flash lines [ lines formed from seams in multiple piece molds ] from the gelcoat surface. All fiberglass components go through our 12 point total cure process, insuring no post cure, and are inspected at each step of production. every component is machined buffed to insure that the surface is even and flat.

These features combine to give our customers with the highest quality body and ease of assembly.
