Modern Rain Gutters
An improvement to the original design is the addition of anti-drip rain gutters above the side windows; designed to be functional and sleek.
Original-Spec Zippered Window Section
Prestige Heritage® car hoods stay faithful to the original design where possible. One such design feature that is seldom offered in the marketplace is the replaceable window section with full curtain zipper. In addition to allowing the window section to be replaced; this design eliminates the exposed stitching that is found on other zippered window designs and the heavy-duty zipper provides excellent durability.
Bespoke Binding Options
Create a bespoke finish to your new car hood by specifying contrasting binding (edging) available in a wide range of colours. The binding features around the side window apertures and around the zip window aperture.
Your new Premium Bespoke car hood can be specified with hand-rolled binding to create a sleek finish to your new hood.
Hand rolled binding is a technique that hides the stitching used to attach the binding and is an original finish for car hoods on most luxury convertibles.
Hydrophobic Fabric Guard
All Prestige Heritage® fabric hoods are pre-coated with an exceptional, high performance hydrophobic fabric guard. The fabric guard helps to improve the life span of the fabric by offering excellent water repellency, resistance to mildew, resistance to dirt build-up and it also helps to maintain the colour fastness of the fabric.
Precision Made for a Precise Fit
Many companies talk about the manufacturing techniques they use but this is irrelevant if the methods used to pattern and design the car hoods are not to factory standard. Not everyone has the knowledge, experience or passion to precisely pattern and develop a car hood to the highest standards of quality and fit. If this process is not carried out correctly: no amount of hi-tech machinery will make the car hood fit and function as precisely as the factory original.
Our dedicated pattern makers have over 40 years of experience developing hoods for OEM and aftermarket customers alike and each hood is computer cut from their precise digital patterns to ensure an accuracy of +-0.01mm.
Premium Grade Thread
The quality of construction is just as important to the longevity of a car hood as the hooding material that is used. An important component of construction is the quality of the thread.
We only use premium grade OE thread that is specifically engineered for car hoods. The thread offers exceptional UV and abrasion protection; as well as resistance to mildew.
