Layed it down, how do I polish the fairing?
Well, I layed down my 650 yesterday in a damp slow speed down hill turn. Slid into a ditch and scratched the left side fairing over about 40% of its side area. Not too deep and no dents or cracks. Can the plastic be wet sanded and polished? Is there a clear coat over the plastic? I have auto paint spray equipment so I can do the work easily. The decals pretty shot so I would like to remove them both. Any suggestions on the best way to remove these?
Btw, I have Motech engine guards and they did a pretty good job. If I had not gone into the ditch, which pretty much swallowed the bike, I think the bars would have kept all damage away from fairing. In any case I am planning to weld another higher bar section to these Motechs. Now that one is very scratced I don't mind refinishing both after the welding. Are the Motech bars powder coated or painted?
About me, a twisted knee and a bit of road rash. My heavy Joe Rocket suit, leather gloves and helmet did their job.
