Working with plastic
I'm in the process of creating a naked DL650 and am looking to make a couple of small plastic covers for the tank to cover up the bosses for the fairing bolts. My question is: what's the best kind of plastic to use and where do I get it? Ideally I'd like to be able to bend/shape it at least a little. I'm not looking to build a whole new fairing, just 2 or 3 small pieces to fill the gaps and cover some of the ugly stuff.
Should I look for a crashed fairing and cut it up or do they sell stuff that would be suitable at Home Depot? I figure someone on this site has done some of this. You guys seem to have farkled around quite a bit. :lol:
