Fiberglass Body Kits

Fiberglass Body Kits

Body kits for VAZ are car parts that may be replaced in order to make a car lighter, its aerodinamics and exterior better. It's a customization/personalization of a car. The most popular car kits are front and rear bumpers, side skirts and spoiler. Sometimes they want to replace a hood, side mirrors or wheel archs. Everything is possible with fiberglass.

Fiberglass - is a composite material made from synthetic fiber and plastic resin. It's quite strong, very light and relatively cheep, but in time it fatigues and cracks may appear. Also it is volnurable to damages. They say it is easily repairable but be careful if you want to do it yourself! This material can particulate and become out of control, what may lead to skin or eye injuries. Not really a good perspective. So professionals are welcome.

The strength of a fiberglass body kit depends on the way they mold it, so the cheeper the part is, the less strong it is, for sure. The other "stronger" composite materials are Poly-Urethane, Duraflex, ABS Plastic and Carbon Fiber. But they are also much more expensive.
