    My question is, I recently found a body kit I like but I cant seem to find it anywhere in polyurethane just fiberglass and the roads around here are kind of shitty in some spots, so I dont want to risk having it get cracked but was wondering if I could still go with it, but get some type of treatment or coating put on it to make it so it would not crack as easily?

    then don't get it.


    seriously, stock is so much cleaner than 99.9999999999999993% of the bodykits out there.


    and fiberglass sucks.

    back when i was a ricer and into kits, i never had a glass kit that lasted more than a month.

    'course i cant drive for shit...

    leave the body stock put some lips on it shave the door handles and everything else to make it look clean. Do a swap and you'll be plenty happy.

    The mugen Fleared kit?

    My friend is obssessed with that kit, unfortunately, he is yet to find a urethane equivalent so nay for now.

    They make a just plain mugen kit in urethane, also known as above mentioned wings west rs 6 pc.

    that kit is a fraud, Civicious had it right, a REAL M-Tec body kit would cost you more than 2 -4 of your cars price.

    get the URATHANE WINGS WEST 6PC RS RACING KIT its as close to what you want as you are gonna get
