View Full Version : Body Kit / Lip Materials?

07-12-2004, 11:39 PM
I was wondering if someone could supply me with information as to the differences between different body kit / lip etc materials.
I've seen Fiberglass, urethane, ABS, and carbon fiber. I'm not so much concerned with CF as much as the other three, but what about durability / repairability? What are the pro's and con's of each? (repair, durability, paintability etc)
Thanks ;]

Urethane is probably the best choice.
Fibreglass and ABS are probably better for non-critical areas like side skirt or rear wing.
All are paintable & repairable.ABs mayb costly to repair.If u get any of these from a no-name shop b careful the part quality mayb low & surface wavy.You can spot a wavy body kit from 1/2 a block away.

That's why a lot of guys get the JDM OEM Honda(or HPF) body Kits.

Urethane is great because if you accidently bump something, it wont crack on your right away like fiberglass will. Thats why I went with the kaminari lip kit... Kit looks great.. and if I do scrape on the bottom, I dont have to worry about it cracking or anything.
