There are a few things you should take into consideration before you buy your kit. For one thing, you’ll have the choice between a fiberglass kit or a poly-urethane kit. You will also have the choice of buying a complete kit (which in most cases consists of front bumpers, rear bumpers, side skirts and sometimes hoods) or just one or two components. It’s up to you and will depend on your preferences and budget. And lastly, you’ll have the choice of many different manufacturers for your body kits from which to choose.
First things first, when choosing your body kits you can choose fiberglass or poly-urethane. Each material has it’s good points and bad points. Fiberglass tends to be lighter and in some cases, less expensive, which means that if you do have an accident and need to make repairs it tends to be less expensive. Plus, fiberglass is easier to paint which will again, make repairs easier.
The overall quality of fiberglass can vary greatly from one manufacturer to another. For that reason it’s very important to remember to compare more than just price when comparing one body kit to another.
Poly-urethane is a rubber like substance which is very flexible but not as easy to paint and doesn’t tend to hold up as well when painted.
Some parts can be attached directly over the existing back bumper and sometimes you’ll just completely replace the existing factory parts. Also, some parts will be attached with adhesive and some will need to have holes drilled and the parts will be screwed in.
When it comes to installing your parts, it’s best if you can do it yourself, but if not, you’ll have to hire a person or company to do so. If you are hiring someone make sure that you’re careful about who you trust your project to. Make sure that when they give you an estimate of what the price will be that they put it in writing and carefully include everything that they will do. You also want them to put in writing an estimated time frame for the installation.
Also, if your kit is going to be delivered directly to the shop, make sure they know enough to carefully check out the package to make sure that everything is included as well as that everything has been delivered undamaged.
When it comes to purchasing Hyundai Tiburon Body Kits just take some time to find the right manufacturer, the right materials and the right shop to install that kit. You can dramatically improve your car’s appearance and make it uniquely yours.
