OK I think I am going to give my car a makeover but have a few questions first. I plan on molding the front and rear bumpers and doing alot of shaving around the edges.....

My question is, how well does molding the bumpers deal with the enviroment. The reason I ask is, i have no garage at the moment. The car will be kept outside, but it will be covered. Will the cold temperatures cause the molding to crack?

Also, just how durable is the molding. The car is driven farely easy, ocasionally scraping, nothing hard though. Will just hitting a pothole hard enough cause the molding to crack?

Sorry to sound like such a n00b but I am tyringto get as much information as possible before I decide on what I am going to do.

Thanks,
Frankie

Molding your bumpers looks awesome but if it is daily driven i would not recomend doing the front.The day to day things like potholes and scrapes will cause it to crack ( or at least they did mine) but the rear shouldnt give you any probs save someone hitting it.

Good luck

you can do anything you want. Molding is durable as the fiberglass put on it. If you mold the bumpers and hit a hole or pothole hard enough and your bumper scrapes, your looking for trouble. It will not only crack the molding, but will also cause the fenders to pop out. If you have fiberglass fenders, say bye-bye.
