you pay for what you get, generally cheap body kits require so much body work it evens out with buying the good kit to begin with~ and never buy fiberglass body kits.

Noobe question but, why should one not buy fiberglass body kits? Also, what kind of body work would be required?

Fiberglass does not have any give to it. If you brush a curb, or hit an animal in the road, the bumper will just crack, split, break apart on contact. Urethane is softer and will bend rather than break.

Re: IS THIS LEGIT?!!!!! Cheap saleen body kit

I tried a fiberglass kit before, tried being the key word. The only thing that was close to fitting was the front bumper after I trimmed and shaped it. Rear was way off along with the side skirts. You definitely get what you pay for. If you want a quality kit buy urethane. Mrbodykit sells a lot of different Mustang kits for reasonable prices.

your OEM bumpers on 99+ are Urethane you can push in on them and feel them flex, thats how I can tell if its Urethane.
