painting my fairings?

I've been considering a 2 tone look lately, and i'm a fan of white/red. Some of you know, i lowsided recently and the right fairing and tail have some dmage, though very minimal. no cracks, just scuffed, so i figured maybe now would be a good time to look into painting them. what might it cost me to have the lower fairings done in white? I'm not even sure yet how it would look. I want to keep the tank red, but i'm not sure about the upper fairings or tail. Ideas? suggestions? Just mulling it over right now, but wanted some opinions to toss around. thanks

yeah, it's tornado red, so i'd want some sort of stencil in red. i'm not sure if i should leave the uppers/tail red or paint them as well.

i don't wanna spray paint it, i'll do a job lol

hmmm. pearl white does sound good on upper and lower fairings, with the red seat sub frame. maybe silver flake, just because the tank lettering is silver. that leaves the tail. red or white?

I'm sure i'd save some money just bringing the fairings somewhere instead of the whole bike. and i'd PM scootertrash when i was ready for powdercoat. does anyone know a member that does paint work?

You can get your subframe wrapped in vinyl if u dont want to paint. Greg at UnderGround Grafix hooked me up. Uou can see it in the picture below, and see it extend up to the end of the bike.
