well the deal with fiberglass is that its usually a lil cheaper (due to easier manufac. tech.) and is reasoably strong. It can be used as a hood because it wont overheat and deform over the heat. Body kits are possible, but urethane is defiately better and more reliable
fiber glass can be very strong (speaking from personal experience) if made well, i hit a few curbs and ditches and nothing happened to my body kit (on my accord). but definately urethane is a better way to go, tho they both have their goods and bads.
urethane is much more durable and flexible, doesnt break
fiberglass can be modified to fit your car
so would u rather have a strong kit that doesnt fit too great and not repairable if it ever breaks. (if thats the case)
or would you rather have a not so strong kit but u can have a perfect fit and can be repaired if damaged? (if thats the case as well)
btw, what u mean cf hood wont last too many winters???
not like its going to freeze and shatter or somethingCF is more durable than urethane, its like the ultimate thing...lol
Hand laid fiberglass is very strong and durable. Don't listen to all the crap peeps say about fiberglass, they oviously have no experience. What do you think all of the good kits are made out of like the Ings, Rando, Buddy Club, C-west, etc? All the expensive kits from Japan? Yup, you guessed correctly, FIBERGLASS, not poly urethane.
Please don't spread mis-information about fiberglass unless you know what you are talking about. If you do a search, you will find a post started by an employee by Kaminari, in which he explains the differences between the two, and talks about the good/bad of both, fiberglass and poly. Even even says that he prefers fiberglass over poly for a full bumper replacement!!!
