My Own "Carbon Fiber Guy"
The use of fiberglass is a clear indicator of the type of resin that was used to make your current targa; Polyester. That type of resin will get brittle with heat over time and unless it is a thick build up like a boat hull it will eventually start cracking. My parts are made with Epoxy resin which will soften with enough heat, not crack. The good news is that I think that I have a resin solution that cures at room temp and has a high service temp, both of which are important since I do not have a giant oven for these parts. I have to knock out some rear seat delete kits then I will come back to the targas to try the new resin system.Jeff,
I still have one of the original CF targa prototypes from 11 years ago. They are CF outside, FG inside, and the two I own have held up fine in the heat of Georgia's summers. That being said, I'd like one of yours when you start making them again. Your craftsmanship FAR out classes the ones i have !!! I don't care about separation at 180* temps. It's gonna be for show anyway. Like the ones I have now are. Do they come with the moldings and rear mounts?
As for what is included, my targas DO NOT include the two rear mounting brackets, weather stripping, lock, etc. Just the targa with the hardware to bolt up your existing parts.
