  • Is this worth saving?

    I have a right side fairing with a couple of holes and scratched up really bad. Also missing a chunk of the bottom part of the fairing. Is this worth saving by plastic welding? Any and all ideas are welcome.

        Wow, that's gonna need a big hunk of donor plastic, but if you have a piece that will work, it's worth fixing.

          I have no experience in doing this kind of thing but I think I'll use this one to start with. The left side is pretty much ok. I just scored a good right fairing on ebay. Just gunna get it painted.

            That looks like a really good oppertunity to practice using a variety of different options for repairs to see what will work best for you.

                I would keep it for donor plastic, and watch ebay for something more easily repairable. The problem with a separated part is getting it to all line up correctly again.
