IS IT ORIGINAL OR FAKE?

Is the Kaminari kit suppose to have some sort of Kaminari emblem on the side skirts? I just purchased my kit and awaiting its arrival but I heard that here are a lot of kits being sold that look just like the Kaminari kit but are not actual Kaminari's. Thus, I wanted to make sure that my kit was the authentic kit. Is there anyway of checking to see if the kit is indeed original?

hey Zerohine calm down...on the sides skirt underneah it says like Kaminari w/ some #'s i think it is on the sideskirt maybe the rear valance....ok the Kaminari kit is Poly-Urethane NOT Fiberglass...you can tell it is Poly-Urethane because when you get the kit it will be BLACK and bendable....Fiberglass is WHITE AND CRACKS!

Or,,, you can pick the bumper up above your head and throw it straight down in to the ground......If it shatters, its fiberglass.......Let me know what happens.....
