PARTS and ACCESSORIES
Pteazer urethane and fiberglass components
are handmade in the United States using the highest quality
polyester resin and glass fiber reinforcement. The surface
is primer grade gel-coat. This gel-coat reduces paint preparation
time since it contains no wax and is easier to sand than
high gloss gel-coat that is traditionally found on fiberglass
consumer products such as boats.
Fiberglass hoods have traditionally experienced difficulty
with fiber print through.
This print through is the fiber-reinforcing pattern becoming
visible when the hood is exposed to the sun and engine compartment
temperatures. Pteazer hoods are fabricated with a proprietary
process, which minimizes fiber print through. This process
means less paint preparation time and much less print through
in the finished product.
Fabrication process: A female mold is sprayed with gel-coat
and allowed to cure. For the hoods, a ceramic barrier coating
is sprayed behind the gel-coat. A mixture of resin and glass
reinforcement is then applied and de-bulked by hand. This
reduces the resin content and eliminates air voids in the
composite part. Some parts receive a layer of coremat and
an additional layer of fiberglass to develop the required
stiffness. The hood is post cured at elevated temperature.
Parts are de-molded and trimmed of excess flash. Any surface
imperfections are repaired. The parts are fitted to our
master jigs and boxed for shipment.
Parts are ready to be prepared for paint when you receive
them. The quality of your finished paint job is greatly
influenced by the attention to detail at this stage. A concourse
quality job for a show car will require painstaking detail.
All jobs require detail sanding, priming and painting.
