Fiberglass Body Kits vs Carbon Fiber Auto Kits

When it comes to car customization, there are fiberglass body kits and carbon fiber kits. Which one you get depends on what you want to do with your vehicle. The following is a comparison of the two types of kits.

Fiberglass Kits

Fiberglass body kits are made of a glass-like fiber or filament molded under pressure to make the shape of the item. It’s good because it doesn’t weigh a lot, it’s hard, and it also doesn’t cost a lot. Fiberglass kits are the ones used most in manufacturing. For one thing, they are easy to fix with special glues. Just fix the pieces together with the glue, use a clamp to hold the pieces together, and then paint and sand it to finish the job.

It does, however, have a few issues. It can break easily, and it is tougher to paint than other materials due to extra steps like needing to sand it several times before it can be painted. Carbon fiber is very strong but also tends to be very expensive.

Carbon Fiber Kits

A carbon fiber auto kit is a mix of carbon fibers that are sealed together under pressure using a resin material. It is put into a mold along with the dye to color it and form the product. This is big advantage over fiberglass kits as the color is all the way through. This also makes it more costly than fiberglass kits.

Overall, the type of auto kit you get, whether fiberglass body kits or carbon, depends on what you want it to do.
