well if you already bought the kit and like it, I would go ahead and install it if you have the tools and a shop to work in. Fiberglass kits are a PITA to install, I just installed one on a celica last week at work and even though the kit was $2500 we had 13 hours in the kit just to install it, and smooth out any waves with plastic filler. and the kid ended up dropping something like $1200 just to get it installed, then he ended up payin like 4000 total to get the kit installed and whole car repainted.

On my car I installed a wings west urathane kit on my focus in my garage and it took a little under an hour to install, plus 30 mins to put a skim coat of filler on a few waves and it was done. The only fitment issues I had was the passenger fender poked out a little becuase it was replaced after a wreck...but same deal with oem bumper.


So if your having a shop do it for you the additional cost of the urathane quickly outways the cost of more labor in an average fibergass kit. Also like they said urathane is much more durable, i've scraped my front bumper HARD a few times and just some chewed up plastic....fiberglass would have cracked.
