Plastics repair
« on: July 14, 2012, 12:43:48 am »
So the cool shop we found (not our parts shop, but a dude that does just fairing repairs n paint jobs) said 100 bucks to fix my plastics and prep for the wrap. Well, not the arse is saying 300 bc he doesn't remember the original quote  :groan How hard are cracks and rashed fairings to fix? :) Please let me know. :) I will post piccies tomorrow. ;D

Cracks and breaks shouldn't be that hard to fix, although no doubt, they will be heavier than the stock "plastics".

Really depends on how much work it will take. But if they are cracked up pretty good thats about right. $100 would be pretty cheap. Any decent plastics on Ebay cheap?

sorry, it has taken so long to get back to yall. I will get picks when I get the bike back from the shop. Apparently, its the bearings that are outta whack :/ *sigh*   I see no need to buy new plastics, I bought the wrap to cover the repairs that are going to be done. 100 was great, but then the dude changed his damned mind. WTH

You might look into some bumper repair. For plastics. It doesn't harden like bondo and will let everything move like factory
