Question: What are Kawasaki body kits made of?
Answer: Most body kits are either made of fiberglass, poly-urethane, or ABS plastic.
Question: What's the difference between them?
Answer: Each has its pros and cons. Take a look:
Fiberglass body kits - These are the most prevalent body kits by far. The main reason is because they're the most cost-effective to manufacture. Fiberglass body kits are almost all made by hand, and because of that they don't have the same precision of fitment and finish as, say, your machine-made CAD-designed factory bumpers do. Also, most fiberglass body kits won't withstand a fender-bender as well as, for example, poly-urethane body kits. That being said, paint adheres really well to fiberglass, and fiberglass won't warp even in the most extreme of weather conditions. Besides that, they're the most affordable type of body kit available. Extra note: some companies have introduced high-end fiberglass body kits that use a specialty flex resin that gives bodykit-buyers the best of both worlds: durabilty and affordabilty. An example of this is the Duraflex brand of body kits, which is probably the most popular-selling line of body kits we offer.
Poly-urethane body kits - Poly-urethane (also referred to as simply "urethane") is a techinical word that basically means "rubber". Urethane body kits are more expensive than fiberglass ones because they cost a whole lot more to make. The cost to develop a proto-type and mold for a complete urethane body kit is about 12 times that of a fiberglass body kit. Urethane body kits are made out of heavy-duty molds and are machine-made, so the precision of finish is normally solid. Also, urethane body kits can actually withstand small accidents and stay in tact. There are a few draw backs to urethane body kits though: 1) Paint doesn't adhere to them particularly well, so it takes extra elbow grease to get them painted properly, 2) They are prone to warping in extreme weather conditions, so you'd have to consider garaging them at times depending on where you live, and 3) They cost substantially more than fiberglass body kits.
ABS Plastic body kits - ABS plastic body kits are the closest thing you'll find to what your own vehicle is made of. Many automobile manufactures use ABS plastic to make body panels. ABS plastic body kits are machine-made. They're easier to paint than poly-urethane body kits, but not quite as flexible; they are more resemblant of your factory body panels. Like poly-urethane body kits, ABS plastic body kits are substantially more expensive than fiberglass body kits because they are so much more capital-intensive to design and create.
