Got the bike back

Ok got the bike back from the wreck and the repair was......Well lets just say after waiting 3 months for my bike anxious to get it back, I have it in my possession but not happy.

Basically the bike itself runs smooth. Its mainly cosmetics. Got the fairings ordered from Hong Kong but they have fitment problems. Go figure. most of it looks pretty clean and we had t widen some of the holes where it bolts up. However i dont think we will be able to get it to sit flush.

Question is, are there any shops out there that could make it work?? Or do you think I should just get OEM Fairings to finish the work?

P.S. My friend wrecked it and paid to have it fix so he ordered the parts.

That's where you went wrong. I've heard NOTHING good about the plastics from Hong Kong.

If it waqs mine I would want the OEM fairings. That's what it had when your friend wrecked it and that's what he owes you.
When you play with sombody else's stuff, you better be ready to fix it, if it gets broke... them's the rules.
