fairing repair??

I'm getting ready to repair my fairings from the filling.of the scratches, to the bondo, primer, & painting. I've watched the youtube videos but where can I buy the materials. Any advice would be awesome. Thanks

I fixed the tail on my niner with a pvc epoxy that you knead together. Had a weird whiteish blue texture. Easy to fill and form. Sand smooth. Not Bondo but quite strong.

Lighter, what do you mean? I called the Kawasaki dealer today to see if I could get the materials from them and what order they paint. Primer clear base etc... they referred me to color rite .com said they can help me match my facto ry paint

Awesome, yes, I've used this before for other household repairs and could see where it could work. Thanks for the suggestion it's being considered as a scratch filler and evener

little hint, to smooth it, get your finger wet. It won't stick to your finger then. easier to smooth. I still ended up sanding mine quite a bit with a random orbital sander (lol, woodworking skills on a bike). It turned out though. Just rattle can satin black on it for now, but i am going to use duracoat on the tank and tail this summer. going to be the same color as my ar-15. HAHA. black gun + black bike = win!

I saw on another forum that mixing superglue and baking soda works good for gluing plastic and filling in gaps.
