it's NOT unbreakable, if you hit something that will still crack. he probably just means that it is made out of urethane which gives it better durabitily than fiberglass if you happen to tap something.

that is the Vizage kit...
and everything is breakable...they are saying that if it's urethane, it won't crack and bust, but instead just bounce around or bend without snapping like fiberglass

if you abuse the urethane the paint may chip off.

diamonds are unbreakable... you should get the kit, with the unbreakable notion in writing in the warenty, so that once you do break it, you can get a new peice for free

like isaac says "only buy urethane if you plan on crashing your car"

in other words..pointless...if you hit a tree it will get shattered, if you hit a deer...it will deffinetly smash it

Actually I have a TRD front bumber thats urethane and one time I took a turn to fast and went between two signs and crashed into a 2 by 4 that was spiked int the ground. My front bumber bent inward and I had to pull it out with my dads truck. While I was pulling it out the front bumper just popped back how it was with just a little scratch.

Some guy email me with pics of this thing claiming that it was unbreakable. He had pics of people standing on it, and pics of people twisting it. Doesn't mean it's unbreakable, just flexible.

yeah i think i've seen that kit before in magazines with people twisting the bumper... seems pretty cool... and definately less breakable than fiberglass... i doubt it's "unbreakable" but it'll definately take a beating... the design of the kit is a bit much for my tastes... but if you like it... go for it! thumbsup

What are you talking about?? Diamonds can break other diamonds. That's like saying if you break a pencil in half you'll still have two pencils. Anything (solid matter wise) can be broken.

unless there is something different about this kit - ie; not genuine... I have no clue where they would install the "Mesh" to confused

And as far as the claim, "This Kit Comes Primed and Unpainted" - does that mean that they shoot with with primmer before shipping to you??? because you cannot just paint urethane without first priming it... and those GENUINE kits don't come from the manufacture already primmed grin

I filled the broken area with silicon and repainted that section - Steven and InsaneImport got a chance to look at it halfway through my repairs about a week ago
