All new, high quality fiberglass XJS bonnet/hood.
V12 Sales and Service have developed a V12 XJS
fiberglass hood which in basic form is ideal for those clients who wish to
race their XJS and as such the hood/bonnet is extremely light, having no
structural stiffening, and in fact weighs in at 20 lbs (9 kilos)
versus the standard hood/bonnet at 62 lbs (28 kilos). The hood is
extremely stiff at the edges.
Hood pin kits. These are high quality, 9/16
(14 mm) diameter pins complete with lock rings and a urethane grommet to
isolate the pin from the hood and stainless hex button head screws and nylox
nuts. In custom colors – white, yellow, blue, red, orange and black. We
would recommend for an un-strengthened fiberglass XJS hood the use of 3
assemblies down each side; one in the front and rear middle – making a total
Air vent louvers. We have taken the XKR Jaguar
louver and set it into the mold, creating a lip so that the standard XKR
louver can sit flush with the top surface. This most definitely helps
with the cooling of a high performance engine. Apart from anything
else it looks fantastic.
For road/race applications where the hood pins
would still be used but here we apply some strengthening beams fiberglassed
into the underneath of the hood/bonnet to eliminate any movement. Weight of
hood 30 lbs approximately (14 kilos).
Road application. In this case the fiberglass
hood/bonnet mounts to the original hinge positions and is provided with the
mounting locations for the gas struts and the standard Jaguar lockdown
arrangement and therefore for all intents and purposes when viewed from
outside is a standard hood which this will have structural members very
similar to the original ones fiberglassed into the underneath surface.
Weight approximately 36 pounds (18 kilos).
All prices ex-Houston USA include orange box crating for shipment.
