Yeah, dude was yanking you around. He just didn't want to do the work. btw, looks like he didn't clearcoat the bumper all the way. I smell shannanigans.

I always heard that the fiberglass does not bond well to urethane.. You can do it but it wont be very strong..

I just had my Urethane r34 repainted
very happy the way it came out

The guy at the shop that did the paint bonded a thin but rigid pc of metal/steel/aluminum? (which ever - cant tell he painted it too) to the bottom. so that got rid of the wave.


before he painted and baked the bumper and place a piece of pipe in the length of the bumper between the sides (on the inside of course)

I asked him why.. he said he does not know the quality of the material and some might get soft and fold.

No wonder they say take it to a place that knows how to handle urethane.
