paint for fairings
« on: 27 October, 2019, 04:20:16 PM »
If I were to buy these lower fairings would it be a difficult job to paint them.
They look slightly different than the existing ones.

Would you paint them yourself??

Looking at the picture, I'd say there's a bit of filling and rubbing to be done first. I suspect that your local car repair garage that does spraying would be able to do it without too much difficulty. They have ingenious photographic methods of matching colours these days. But what that would cost I have no idea.

The ones on ebay are supposed to be a replacement for the damaged fairing, would it not be just a matter of spraying them and attaching them  to the existing brackets. Thank you for the reply.

It says at the bottom of the page.

Fairings are for self mounting. We provide complete fitting kit with product.

I think it is unlikely they will fit your existing mountings but as there is a
fitting kit included this should not be a problem.

Ah sorry - erroneously thought the picture was the one you wanted to buy. Silly me. Still might be an option to consider repair though.
