How much do VIS hoods and trunks weight?
Our hoods and trunks are ultra-light weight. The average weight of each hood is about 15 lbs. Of course, hoods for bigger car models or trucks will weigh more, but they are definitely much more lighter than the originals. Trunks and hatches are even lighter as it is smaller than a hood. Average weight is about 13 lbs.
What is involved to install VIS bodykits?
All bumpers, side skirts, spoilers, or hoods require professional installation. That means that these parts need to be done by experienced body shops that have done bodykits before, not just a regular collision shop. Due to the fact that these are aftermarket parts, some modifications of the parts and/or vehicles maybe necessary. Make sure an installation fit has been done first before priming and painting. Once painting has been done, it is very difficult to modify to fit without destroying the paint. You would have to paint again! Generally speaking, our kits do not have fitment problems. Some bumpers are made to the Japanese spec of some car models. In these cases, more modification may be involved. When in doubt, please call/email us. We are more than happy to answer your questions.
What set VIS Carbon Fiber hoods apart from other hoods in the market?
Our grade "A" carbon fiber hoods are the best in the industry. Each hood is built with a strong carbon fiber skeleton. The outer layer is hand-laid with carbon fiber along with several layers of clear coating that provides the Hi-gloss show-quality finish that other hoods just cannot imitate. The outermost layer of clear coats is a UV coating that protects it from the harmful rays of the sun. Unlike other hoods in the market, our hoods do not fade and turn yellow in a few months. The underside of each OEM hood is reinforced fiberglass with a one-piece fiberglass covering the underling skeleton to provide a clean factory look. We also have double-sided carbon fiber hoods whose skeletons are covered with carbon fiber for more refined look.
What kind of materials are used to make VIS bumpers?
All bumpers and bodykits in general are made out of fiberglass unless stated otherwise. Several layers of fiberglass are used to insure strength and durability of each bumper. Each bumper is primered with a smooth yellow finish. New and improved PolyFiber material has been developed that is as flexible as polyurethane but still made out of fiberglass. See FAQ question related to it below.
