Saleen Kits: Fiberglass or Urethane

I know we had topics like this but the topic always changes, but i am keeping my car, since my parents suddenly decided that they want me to keep it. I want to get a body kit. I want to here the good and the bad about both the fiberglass and Urethane. Whoever has a Saleen Kit please tell me what you think is better.

Thanks

urethane is more flexible and will not crack on light impact . Fiberglass will crack and splinter even with lite impacts. Urethane is also lighter.

Urethane is a clear choice for the car especially if you have or plan to lower your car period!!!!!!!!

Dont start with that. Over time, I'm sure there will be 10+ threads on the same subject. Dont get annoyed with it, IT HAPPENS.

Notice the first line i wrote states that i knew about a thread similar to this, It was asking about Urethane or Fiberglass, i was asking about the saleen kit in either. Like which will fits better as shipped, and what will cost more to work on.........

Soooooooooo somebody wants an opnion on Fiberglass do they...hmmm I believe I can handle this one

- - - DONT EVER GET FIBERGLASS - - -

its the worse to work with, you cant really mold it, its a pain the *** to get mold to a body of a car, unlike polyurethane were its more flexable and probably why Ford chose that for a material than Fiberglass , since if you hit anything real hard Fiberglass is gonna crack right away, unlike the flex you get in poly. , but anyways I got a few bumpers recently that are actually the fiberglass and they were a biotch to install of sorts, the front was relatively pretty easy but the rear, was a real pain in the but...didnt want to bend or flex much for the body curve of my 98', but all in all it looks pretty good and I'm pretty happy with it since my sneezing of the cutting of alot of the bottom half of the rear bumper is starting ease up some from the past 3wks, it was just everywhere in the garage ( Ok my friends Black GT, ended up snow white, and his wife was not entirely to happy about that ).

Here are the pics that I took and plan to write a how to doc eventually, I promise Brent I would

Front Bumper Install ( Thanks to help from Corey aka DangerDude and another friend Tony ):

PS: I need to get RotoZip for sponsor after this install we used them for the rear bumper!
