Another Fight on Fiberglass vs (Poly)Urethane
Is this just a marketing pitch or is this true?

http://www.aftermarketkits.com/shop/

They claim, "...that Poly urethane is not what you want. For a body kit you want high quality fiberglass or ABS plastic. Stock body panels are ABS plastic not Poly Euro thane. Poly Euro thane is very hard to paint and will flake after a while."

BTW: Is baby blue the strongest kind of fiberglass?

i got fibreglass and its baby blue, but i would go with urethane, the only reason i got it cause the kit only cost me 400 bucks CAD and its never been used



go urethane... my .02 cents

i agrre. Polyurethane is definitely superior in terms of durability. have you seen how much they can flex? and tehy wont break as easily as fibreglass. the only reason i didnt get polyurethane is coz veilside dont make their kits in poly urethane for the celi frown
