Urethane?

Should I get urethane??? I found a urethane front end, but I want to know how much of a beating they can take compared to fiberglass.

Well Urethane is what Most Car dealers use as there main body for the cars...and fiberglass well is kinda like a Glass House in perspective... you would not want to shoot a bee-bee gun in one...

I have a fiberglass bumper's on my car, and it was a pure hellion installing, just ask Corey aka Danger Dude, he assisted....

Fiberglass is lighter I believe... but polyurenthane will be much more sturdier.

Your stock front bumper is urethane. It bends, it flexes, its stong. Fiberglass is what the underside of the hood is and the stock spoiler.

You slam you hand down on my spoiler hard enough and it will split in two pieces.

When I had my wreck the impact split the hood in half. There was fiberglass everywhere

You guys need to realize tho too... fiberglass or not, if you get into an accident like that, whatever you have is gonna get f'ed up. Urethane is more expensive, but if you can afford it, get it. :thumbsup:

Urethane can bend back. Fiberglass can't.
