Which kit?

I was wondering, are there any kits that include complete front and rear bumper and are made of urethane? or will i have to go with fiberglass for the kits that are complete bumper replacements. I really need this cause I got in a little accident today and am going to change front and rear bumpers.

I too am in the same situation you are... stupid accidents! I did a crapload of searching and the only kits I've found that are full rear bumper replacements are fiberglass. You can get front bumper replacements in urethane though, Tsunami being one of them. The only thing that's urethane for the rear bumper are valence lips or covers. I'm waiting for them to come out with a full rear bumper made from urethane... Why fiberglass at all !?!? [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]

If you do find any full rear bumpers made of urethane lemme know!

Kamanari is polyurethane thus the huge price(plus you're paying for the name and reputation) and erebuni makes a kit(possibly shogun?) in a fiberglas and urethane version. on nopi.com, the fiberglas one is 683 and the urethane one is 792 for same kit. so roughly little over 100 more for urethane and peace of mind and easier fitment. now, you may be able to find it cheaper than nopi, check around and check out ebay. i just purchased a Tsunami urethane front for 350, about 100 less than others and w/ free shipping off of ebay

Hey bro, as far as I know the only uurathane body kit piece is the Tsunami front lip. Other then that all the other kits are fiberglass (except for the new carbon fiber). Goodluck man.

urethane is flexible and sturdier than fiberglass.. u can also repair urethane if it gets ripped or somethin. wit fiberglass, it can crack easily if ur not careful but its also way cheaper. also, u an make additions on fiberglass, like vents or hood scoops

I have seen the kc aero kit at hot importnights! For a fiberglass kit it fit good! But you could totally tell that they took alot of extra time and effort to produce one nice enough to show! ive see the kits built before and i dont think that a fiberglass bodykit is a good buy no matter how cheap! Ive seen these guys that build them Shoot a very small amount of gel coat into the mold and then just halfasses hose on the glass with a cheesy a$$ chopper gun then pull the kits out while the glass is still green! Thats how they end up all twisted! Urethane is the way to go!

But there are no urethane kits that are complete bumper replacments, front and back (got in accident, need new bumpers). If there were, I'd buy em.

Ya, but the thing is, I like the KC aero more than the tsunami, and I would much rather have that. Only if it were available in urethane.
