The ScienceofSpeed Race Hatch offers a lightweight replacement for the rear stock hatch glass with the option of engine ducting for cooling and induction.
This engine hatch is unique in it's true molded construction. The ScienceofSpeed engine hatch is the only polycarbonate (Lexan) hatch that is produced by molding. Other engine hatches use a flat sheet of acrylic that is sandwiched between two factory glass hatches. This does not result in accurate replication of the factory hatch glass as the first factory glass forms the top surface of the resulting plastic hatch with the incorrect (bottom) surface. The ScienceofSpeed Race Hatch differs by using a reverse fiberglass mold. Polycarbonate Lexan material is used with a scratch-resistant hard coat layer on the surface and anti-fogging layer on the inside. Being reverse molded, the resulting window hatch is a direct replica of the factory glass which retains the factory glass curvature, clarity, and fit. The hatch also includes the same blackout border found on the stock glass. The outer perimeter and fastener holes are CNC-routered for precision.
This hatch is compatible with the factory aluminum support hatch rail & factory edge trim. Installation requires drilling and tapping the factory aluminum rail (drill bit & tap is included).
