Looking for a shop to paint or wrap my fairings

Took a spill a few weekends ago and Iím in the process of sourcing out a few lightly used oem fairings. Anyone have recommendations for a shop that can paint or maybe wrap a few pieces? Not tryin to do anything crazy, just simple and clean. Iím thinking of getting my tank patched up and painted/wrapped as well since it got scratched up pretty good too.

If you're looking for cheap and know how to remove/install all your fairings... I would take all of them to Maaco. Unless you got time to kill, then buy a heat gun and hit up amazon for vinyl wrap. It's not that hard... Just tedious.

Thanks for the info. I've vinyl wrapped simpler things in the past and have found success, but I can't imagine wrapping some of the more complex pieces. Hence my search for a shop.

Bull printing wraps and graphics might be able to help you out.

They did a great job on our Shop vans, they designed it from scratch and put up with our nit picking on the designs and happily adjusted and changed it till it was perfect.

Tell em Iron Supply sent you.

How much you looking to spend?

Depending on your bike Auctmarts China fairings with custom paint ship the US for about $600.

The painting is very good for the price. And they will paint anything you want for the same price.

These are Auctmart fairings hung on my GSXR. Price is about right, $600 to my doorstep.

Mounting can provide some headaches, so be aware. Price against quality still comes to a great value.

To be fair, these are about 5 years old, so I cant speak to current quality - but judging by RC45's post, they are good!

Thank you both for your replies. I have read mixed reviews with companies such as auctmart and monster fairings with most leaning towards satisfaction. I always wanted to spend extra on spare fairings to keep the oem ones rash free, but my procrastination and wanting to spend the money on classes, gear, and cosmetics to wrench on kept pushing that plan further into the future. Definitely regretting it now, but gotta move forward. For now I would like to get an oem fitment setup situated first before venturing that direction again. Hopefully, this time, before another accident. Live n learn.

You'll spend more on the wrap than the fairings.

What surprises me is the cost to vinyl wrap, is more than a cheap paint job... No thanks. I'd rather wrap it myself, regardless of imperfections, it only makes you better at doing the job too
