And of course, if you are looking for a more authentic looking reproduction of the original Shelby part, then it's important to know that the originals were not made with a chopper gun. A chopper gun is a machine that chops a spool of glass thread into short pieces, mixing them along the way with fiberglass resin. It is fast and quite strong, but they can have disadvantages for show quality and for long life.
That's because chopped fiberglass parts contain more open air space, as well as a non continuous fiber content. Under light stress you may not notice a difference, but when push comes to shove it can mean the difference between cracked paint and a broken chunk of hood.
The parts you see here, were made through the hand lay up process, which uses specially woven fiberglass cloth which is cut by hand and hand formed into the molds to make a light, strong bond that is pound for pound, stronger and lighter than the chopper gun Shelby hoods.
Get Shelby style authenticity and a much higher resistance to wear and tear at a very reasonable price.
