I'm gonna go look at someone's body kit that they already have installed to maybe purchase and I was curious the easiest way to tell what it's made out of? I don't want to be hitting it and stuff just to see?

Thanks.

Fiberglass has a weave type pattern on the backside. Especially if it's that crappy chopper gun stuff. Stay away from low quality fiberglass. Crappy fiberglass also tends to be let light through when it's not painted.

Fiberglass tastes like chicken.

Ah ha! So I must do the taste test!

But really though, is the urethane more like a plastic? So when I knock on that, it will sound different than the more hard fiberglass right??

yes, the pur rim will have a different sound. Hard to explain, but the pur rim will have a duller sound and the fibreglass will have a more resounding sound, since it is more rigid.
