“Our goal with this build is to be able to have our first full-show Fox to take to shows all over the Middle East especially the Custom Show Emirates, which is the SEMA of the Middle East and give people a different view of Foxes,” Fozzy AlJaraisi, owner and founder of Fox Body Composites, explained.
He describes the build as a “mix of international love” for the Fox, and that mix will naturally include generous dose of his company’s carbon fiber parts.
“We see carbon fiber everywhere in new cars, its just the coolest thing nowadays. Add carbon fiber to any car and it goes from base to fully loaded,” Fozzy, who was born in Texas and raised in Kuwait, explained. “The Fox body Mustang never had that option, it was filled all over with plastic parts from the factory and it was fine until we started seeing more carbon in the new Mustangs. They had all the cool stuff we wanted as Fox body owners but no one ever made them.”
To bring that modern style to the Fox, Fozzy first set out to build one part that would attract the most attention in the interior.

From there the idea just took off and the company now offers a wide variety of carbon-fiber upgrades for the Fox.

Obviously, the company’s new project car looks to spread awareness for the company’s products. However, Fozzy is truly passionate about this era of Mustang and he wants to raise awareness for these cars around the world. He had hoped to bring Project Epoxied to the states, but that might not in the cards for this year.
“The car will be taken to shows all over the Middle East,” he added. “We had plans for SEMA and Mustang Week 2017, but we might not make it in time. There is always next year.”
