    Ha Ha! Real funny.

    Would have been better if you just hyperlinked it like I did to someone before.

    Like this

    That way people would actually click on it first.

    A few posts in and no one has answered his question yet.

    I would choose whichever is cheapest. You won't be able to tell once it's painted but fiberglass is lighter and stronger than abs plastic.

    Easier to repair as well. But both suck.
