City of Industry, CA (November 2, 2020) – General Motors introduced the new C8 platform Corvette in July of 2019. This eighth generation Corvette has a totally new look and configuration with the implementation of a mid-engine powertrain. The Anderson Composites Research and Development team spent no time getting their hands on this new Corvette for new product creations. We have developed a new carbon fiber front splitter lip, Type-OE hood, mirror covers, rocker extension panels, replacement roof panel, door handles, side air ducts, rear hatch, rear hatch side vents, rear sensor mount, rear spoiler and rear diffuser fins.
The hood, roof, mirror covers, door handles, air ducts, rear hatch, hatch side vents and rear sensor mount will be made of dry carbon fiber for the best weight reduction and fitment. The newly designed front splitter lip, rocker extension panels, rear spoiler and rear diffuser fins will be made with a vacuum-infused process by skilled craftsmen and will have a high luster, show-quality finish. All of these body components will fit to the factory locations with OE hardware.
All vacuum-infused carbon fiber parts are made of high quality 3k, 2x2 carbon fiber twill fabric and high-grade marine resin which provides the best fabric-to-resin ratio which results with the best fitment and finish. Our dry carbon components are manufactured with pre-impregnated carbon fiber fabric and an autoclave. Pre-preg material uses less resin, which optimizes its strength and reduces weight. Our hood, roof and rear hatch will retain the matte finish typical of the dry carbon process while the remainder of carbon fiber parts will be covered with a gloss clear coat to match the look of the vacuum-infused components. The end result for the C8 will be a reduction in weight, quality fitment and a complementary matching surface finish for all the essential carbon fiber components.
