I think PU material is a lot nicer than FG from inside out, what do you guys think?

urethane for the front is the safe route... usually you can get away with fiberglass sides and rear

i think it depends on situation too, if it's a pure race car FG is better, but for daily driving PU is way better, thats why i'm getting one of both
