The moulded rear stone-chip guards supplied by Westfield for their cars fit well, protect your rear arches and are well styled. The problem is the carbon effect ABS plastic they are made from which looks cheap and detracts from the quality of the vehicle.
For the perfectionist kit-car builder, Carbon Mods now offer direct replacement moulded stone-chip guards manufactured from genuine 100% pre-preg carbon fibre meaning you can keep the protection and stylish shape of the stone-chip guards but get rid of the fake-carbon ABS. The difference in appearance is immediate and considerable and can only be truly appreciated once the upgrade has been made.
As a direct replacement part you can be assured that these stone-chip guards can be installed quickly and easily and will fit perfectly the arch type you select from the drop-down list.
Having removed the old stone-chip guards, peel or rub away any old Tigerseal or Sikaflex (if used) and ensure the surface of your rear arches is smooth to allow a flush fit of the new guards. Keep the smooth appearance of your new stone-chip guards by bonding rather than rivetting or screwing them into place.
When bonding the new wings to your arches it is important to spread the sealant thinly and evenly so that it will not slightly distort the arches in the way a zig-zag bead of sealant will.
Materials and Specification
Manufactured from genuine 100% pre-preg carbon fibre no glass or other reinforcement is used in these stone-chip guards. The 2/2 twill weave fabric is a match for our full range of carbon fibre products and unlike many pre-preg carbon fibre products all Carbon Mods products have a high-gloss surface finish which is resistant to fading and discolouring.
The pre-preg manufacturing process used ensured a flawless surface finish and eliminates the need for the tell-tale black gel perimeter used to hide flaws associated with other manufacturers’ wet-lay process.
As an upgrade that can be fitted in under 20 mins and transform the look of your vehicle, these stone-chip guards are set to be one of Carbon Mods’ most popular products Westfield kit-cars.
These Carbon Fibre Moulded Stone-Chip Guards for Westfield are manufactured by Carbon Mods in the UK.
