looks like you're doing a great job so far, and that bike looks pretty sick.

We'll see how it comes out. This is more time consuming than I thought it would be. Especially if you want it to look halfway decent. Fill holes, wait for it to cure, sand them down, light coat of primer, drying time, check for high low spots, fill and sand some more. I have about 3hrs in just the tail alone.
I haven't even started on the upper and lower which have more damage.

well, in my opinion, i wouldn't put too much time in trying to make it look perfect, its only trackdays. Chances are it's gonna get messed up anyway, i mean when the paint meets a 100mph rock, whats gonna give? Now you have chipped spot which is gonna be a different color than the rest of it. Thats the outlook i had on mine, if they were newer plastics i would've taken more time to make it look better. To each his own tho, some are perfectionist and need to be perfect and some just want it to look good, ( my case ) as long as it looks good from a distance, thats good enough for me.

get a good solid filler primer to help find your high/low spots. best way to do it is to prime a good 2 coats of filler primer, get a can of spraypaint (red or something noticeably different from your primer color), and mist over your whole fairings, then wet sand with 400-800 grit paper with a sanding block, the spraypaint will sand away first where your high spots are, the parts where you still see the spraypaints are your low spots, pretty self explanatory. if you need any tips/trick, feel free to PM me with your questions, i'll answer them to the best to my knowledge.

you can use red primer to avoid some double work, assuming your bike is not red
