    plastic welding

    hey can anyone recomend a place to get my fairing fixed? Its a clean crack, so most have suggested to just get it welded together and then repainted.

    so i'm going to get my fairing plastic welded at a shop, but now i have another decision to make. Once its fixed, what should i do:
    1) paint the areas affected to its original color then replace the stickers to transform it back to stock.
    2) paint the areas affected to its original color but leave the bike as is.
    3) Repaint the entire bike a new color.

    below is a photoshop picture of how the bike should look when its fixed and repainted to original color.

    WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?

    I would go with the origingal color. It will be tough to paint it any other color and make it look good with the green wheels. Color-rite sells the original paint for your bike. Cosworth- Do you just buy pimer in a spray can or do you use a sprayer? I am finishing up on mine right now. Also, is there a special primer that I need for the plastic?

    I only use high colids 2 part primer on plastics. Spray cans are a no no for primer if you plan on getting it painted by a professional.

    actually, your thoughts do count.

    I like to know what the public is interested in, as this will affect the resale of my bike. Yes i know, original will sell at the highest price, but also cost the most.
