He sent me a email concerning the CG doors. Should be ready this summer. Has anyone used the fiberglass stuff from these guys?

Thx

Just curious, what is this 'carbon graphite' you're referring to?  Besides never hearing of it in body panels, your link doesn't mention it either.. Question   It does mention carbon fiber, which is well known.

Then you mention fiberglass.. Question Question

I still refer to it as Carbon Graphite. Old term from sheet metal class 20 years ago. Used it in a preprag form for repairs, etc.


Carbon (fiber)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search


This article is about loose or woven carbon filament. For the rigid composite material made from carbon fiber used in aerospace and other applications, see Carbon fiber reinforced polymer.





Fabric made of woven carbon filaments
Carbon fiber, alternatively graphite fiber or CF,[citation needed] is a material consisting of fibers about 5–10 μm in diameter and composed mostly of carbon atoms.

To produce carbon fiber, the carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber as the crystal alignment gives the fiber high strength-to-volume ratio (making it strong for its size). Several thousand carbon fibers are bundled together to form a tow, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric.

The properties of carbon fibers, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports, along with other competition sports. However, they are relatively expensive when compared to similar fibers, such as glass fibers or plastic fibers.

Carbon fibers are usually combined with other materials to form a composite. When combined with a plastic resin and wound or molded it forms carbon fiber reinforced polymer (often referred to as carbon fiber) which has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, and is extremely rigid although somewhat brittle. However, carbon fibers are also composited with other materials, such as with graphite to form carbon-carbon composites, which have a very high heat tolerance

Good morning

You contacted us about getting carbon fiber doors for a 64 Ford Thunderbolt and I wanted to bring you up to date. They will be available in early spring of 2015 March/April. Also, the hood will be available too!
Approx. cost $1185.00 - $1245.00 for doors and the 5" Tear Drop hood will be approx. $695.00

If still interested please contact us.

Not worth the money, effort, or time for such a small weight loss lmo. I only lost 100# after doors, front fenders , and all the glass.

Yup

I agree Rick. I wonder how much weight you save from glass vs carbon
