    did some custom work to my gpr side fairings

    I fig since I'm on premix and bypassed the selector valve and the paint was faded,it was time to repaint and shave the holes,I also didn't like the 3 indentations along the side so I shaved those to give it a smooth look,hopefully these images will load

    I ended up cutting them out and cutting up filler panels off a spare part that was made of the same type of plastic and using a heat gun to shape the filler panels then plastic welded them in,I just didn't like the indentations and they looked out of place and didn't flow with any other lines on the ski

    Looks like a lot of work, but it looks great. What did you use to paint it?

    I used basf paint its their rm line ,its the correct color and they are one of the few paint companies that actually have the formula in their system for the deep blueish purple metallic cocktail,just a major pain since its very transparent over white base,I tried using a black base with 2 coats but the pearls covered too well and the color is still not dark enough,so ill repaint black and do one fast coat of blue and hopefully it is darker

    I used a lot of "specialty" products,i do autobody for a living so I had access to some good materials,after I plastic welded everything I sanded it down good with 80 grit on a d/a sanders then used 3m panel bond adhesive as a filler to mostly reinforce the work then when it dried i used a d/a with 80grit to smooth it out, then used 3m #5887 ez sand plastic repair with #5807 adhesion promoter and blocked it with 120,followed by 180 grit,then a few good coats of primer then paint
