After the body has cured in the mold at an ambient temperature, it is removed and inspected before being prefitted to the chassis. The body is then transferred to our state of the art paint facility, where it undergoes a rigorous quality inspection prior to any preparation. Any areas of concern are addressed before the paint preparation procedure starts.


The initial phase of the preparation involves the body being filed down and filled wherever necessary. The body is then primered which is post cured in an oven at 75 degrees Celsius for one hour. After the body has cooled it is then dry-flattened before it is presented to our quality control for inspection prior to the paint application. Before the paint can be applied the body receives a final check coat. After the check coat has been inspected the body is ready for the application of the final color. The base coat is followed by three layers of PPG clear coat before the car is baked again at 65 degrees Celsius for one hour.

After the body has cooled in the oven it is removed and left for 3 days before being flattened and polished to a high gloss. After the body passes the paint work quality control it is moved over to the final assembly facility.


The ladder-type chassis is fabricated in a jig from SAE 1008 2' x 4' hot rolled rectangular steel tubing, with a 1/8” wall thickness, which provides a sturdy chassis, both in beam strength and in torsion rigidity. The chassis is reinforced with laser cut steel gusset plates in several areas for added strength and to rigidize the chassis in high stress areas. The chassis has been designed to accept a race proven independent rear suspension with coil over struts in the front. The differential is fully rubber mounted to the chassis in a cradle, eliminating mechanical differential noise and providing a smooth drive.

In the final manufacturing phase, the chassis is ground and sandblasted as preparation before it is epoxy powder coated for protection from the environment and added visual impact.The chassis is powder coated using a polyester VX powder applied at 40-60 microns. This ensures that your Backdraft , Breathless Performance Roadster is pleasing to look at even under the skin and adds to its durability and lifespan. It also eases under car maintenance and cleaning.

Rear Suspension

Setting the power safely to the ground is handled by a centrally guided multilink rear suspension. The suspension is fully height adjustable which makes it easier to fine tune for street and track use. The suspension has proven itself both on and off the race track. In conjunction with the front coil over struts you are guaranteed a thrilling driving experience


The roadster features power disc brakes on all four corners. The front brake discs are 310mm(12.2 inch) in diameter and the rear is 295mm(11.6 inch).
