Schoneck Composites was started in June of 2005 by brothers Dan and Derek Schoneck. Being in the racing business we saw a need for a speedier service for the Mustang crowd. Due the fact that most companies do all makes of cars. They are usually many weeks if not sometimes months out on delivery time on parts. So we made it our goal to produce quality hand laid light weight Fiberglass and Carbon Fiber Mustang parts, ready to ship in 10-15 business days from time of order.
