Don't be fooled by the pictures... its the same thing as fiber glass.

i just got one... and i've got about 16 hours in it right now installing the front bumper and side skirts.

fitment is horrible... there are no pre-drilled or spaces for the stock bracket to change over. i have to make brackets for everything and fitment is so bad i have to mold over the front bumper to the fenders ... looks better now IMO but it was horrible...

i got the F335 kit from ebay.

if you gonna get a kit... go urethane... most of this time has been wasted making sure the "duraflex" doesn't crack or break during install.

also imma perfectionist in my work, i spent 6 hours sanding one fender until my roommate told me to stop cause it was perfect... but still

i also went wingless... i think imma keep it that way... and i'm leaning towards a professional flat black... from the white on blue i got now... alot of work to be done... i put in about 4 hours a day on it and the weekends like 6-8... hopefully it will be done and painted in the next two weeks.

i'll post pics of the before, during, and after when i'm done... but yea duraflex sucks...

whether or not they fit all depends on proper offset and bolt pattern..

What u have to remember is that the Vader kit , or invader kit... is a knockoff from the original. The original provider for this idea, and the true kit comes from a company called Veilside, and they are very expensive.

the only urethane kits i've found is front bumpers only... w/ fiberglass side skirts... the rear bumper might be urethane too unless its a border kit which has the fiberglass attachments...

haha

the picture on ebay shows the duraflex looking like urethane and they are twisting it.... wha bullshit.

its better than fiberglass i guess... but not by far.

its coming along...
