40/41 Willys Coupe
Hand-crafted fiberglass laminate featuring:
Hand laid layers of fiberglass, durable gelcoat surface and an inner core, providing high strength and superior surface quality. All high stress areas are reinforced with heavy woven roving [woven strands of fiberglass at 90 degrees, used in most boat manufacturing] providing the strongest most durable body in the industry.
No fiberglassing required:
All inner components, floor, firewall, trunk liners and door liners are pre-glassed and bonded in place. Door and trunk liners are bonded together in the molds with custom fixtures for precise and accurate placement.
Door frames and dash are supported with hardwood and plywood inner structure for stability and solid mounting of hinges and latches.
Trunk hinge pivot areas are steel reinforced, precisely located and fiberglassed in place.
Doors and trunk lid come hinged to the body using 1/4 steel tapped sandwich plates behind inner liners for strength and adjustablity.
Doors are latched with bear claw rotary safety latches. Door window tracks are installed in doors.
We mold our own bodies, to exact outer dimensions using original specifications, utilizing our 30 years experience in the fiberglass industry. 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 machine buffed to insure that the surface is even, flat and shiny.
These features combine to give our customers the highest quality body and ease of assembly.
