bodykit

what are better polyurethene or fiberglass, I've always thought polyurethene are better, but some guy at a shop was telling me that fiberglass is easier to work with and abt the same quality as poly that they both can shadder if you hit a bump, but fiberglass is repairable, and also polyurethene can be a pain to install if they get warped, or not properly sized matched to vehicle. I've never had one on any of my cars, but thought abt the aqua kit, but its fiberglass anyone got some idea's these bodykits are expensive and I'd hate to have something on my ride that gets messed up in two months.

It depends on the kit. I prefer polyurethane (acutally, I hate all kits, but if I had to choose one, it would be poly). You have a little more flexibility installing them, and they take impact better.

i work in a body shop and urethane is much better especially a goood brand, fiber glass will crack and break easy if hit some thing where plastic will just get scratched which is much easier to fix and last alot longer

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)
