Affordable fairing repairs - Melb

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' started by Javier Amaya, Sep 26, 2015.

  1. Hi to everyone, I bought a CBR 250 but the previous owner had dropped the bike and I would like to repair some scratches in the right side fairing panel but as a student I'm looking for an affordable place to bring my bike. If you guys have some advice for me, I´ll be very happy to hear recommendations.

    Thank you...

  2. Got any pics ?
    I would take the fairing off first.
    Take it to some panel beaters and tell them your paying in cash.
    If theyre not too bad u could take fairing to a auto paint shop and get them to match some touch up paint and touch it up yourself. Depends on how much $ u have and if u want a perfect job or not

    Thanks mate for your comments, I am trying to upload some images.

    Somebody could just tell how can I put some pictures.....

  4. Don't think that worked mate, I'm using phone and I go to upload a file
  5. To do the job properly you will have to sand back the fairing, repair the cracks with fibre-glass, use body filler to cover in some gouges and a repaint the whole fairing + buy another sticker pack. For a proper job I can't see you having much change from 1k.

    To be honest being a LAMS bike I would just mend the cracks myself with some fibreglass resin to stop them spreading and buy a small pot of touch up paint.

    When you have enough scratches you buy a new aftermarket fairing for $500 from china, respray the whole bike another colour or wait for some plonker with insurance to run into you.

  6. thank you guys for the info.... I'll do the cheap option as I wanna update for a bigger motorcycle in 6 months.
  7. If u took fairing to auto paint shop 2 tins of touch up paint should only cost u $20 odd each
  8. Thanks mate, Could you tell if you know a shop where they can help me with the touch up Paint, the problema is that I am new here and I dont know places that they can do a good job finding the right colors.
  9. I live in Sydney. Google auto paints. Any decent shop should be able to get a pretty close match
