Moulded from an original TVR Chimaera roof panel, these replacement targa panels are offered as a lighter, single-sided alternative which are easier to handle and store. Their lighter construction and the fact there is a convenient lip running around the underside makes them less cumbersome than TVR's heavier original item.
The build method involves laminating a separate outer skin, and a separate supporting frame (basically the underside skin with the entire centre area cut away leaving a 'picture frame' around all four sides) and the two halves are then sandwiched together using flexible PU sealant.
This method has advantages over solidly joining the two halves with fibreglass resin and allows more fitting flexibility.
Overall this single-sided type of targa panel is noticeably lighter than the TVR originals, and the frame running around the underside allows the panel to be very easily grasped, in fact it can be held very easily on just a couple of fingers without it feeling heavy or losing grip. Try doing that with the original!
