Body Structure and Construction

Our body is made from hand-laid fiberglass and high temperature tooling resin.  The roof has addional carbon-fiber reinforcements.

Fiberglass has a poor memory. So pressure on it for an extended period of time will distort it slightly.  While you won't be able to feel it, the distortion will be visible in a good paint job.  E.R.A. has taken the stress off the outside body.  High temperature tooling resin is used throughout, even in the invisible inner panels.  Heat distortion is even less than with vinylester.

Note that the inner panels are bonded only onto the return edges of the outside skin.  We gasket the areas between the inner panels and the outside body to seal them.

This body will look good for a long, long time.
