I'm buying a fiberglass body- kit next week, and i know that kits are made of different material. I was just wondering which one is the best, I don't know that much on the topic and I don't wanna make a mistake by buying this. Thanks!

well.....basically, stay away from fiberglass unless you have to.....

but since most kits are made of fiberglass, and polyurethane is expensive....you usually don't have much choice

but in the end, it goes like this....if you're buying from a shop that isn't a dealer for certain big companies, you're more than likely getting a knock-off, which are molds made of the original fiberglass kits

these kits are usually not very well made, they will crack eaier, are thinner, don't fit well, and need a lot of prep to be painted

in the end, you'll get what you pay for.
if you want to go safe, go directly to erebuni or their dealers to get the real kits

most kits out there are fiberglass. As the other have mentioned, f/g tends to be brittle. Your other choice is polyurethane. The problem with poly is the selection is limited and costs more than f/g.

I see you drive a 'trix. I don't know what's avail for your car, but stick to a reputable seller. Some kits have horrible fitment issues that could cost alot of money for custom work to correct the poor workmanship. Let us know how things go :thumbup:
