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.
Hydrophobic Fabric Guard
All Prestige fabric hoods are pre coated with an exceptional, high performance hydrophobic fabric guard. The fabric guard helps 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.
Hot Air Tape Sealing
An improved design on the original hood is the use of hot air tape sealing for the roof seams. This is a modern process (original for Porsche and BMW) that provides a precise and water tight seal for the seam; in addition to improving long term durability.
