Wicked How to make your own Carbon Fiber fairing....

Ok......So I started a little early.............But I was going back and forth about making a dashboard to mount the instruments in......or make a new sub frame to host said instruments.... My goal is to move them 1 1/2 inch to the right. They are not centered....for my taste......he-he. My current setup with the gps could move a little to the right..... I`d like to keep it like this.....imho....a more oem look.....and less rattle and vibes for the gps.....


Right now I think it`l be too much trouble to re-make the sub frame in CF.... I did`nt realize it went way down along the sides......arrrrgggg. So I decided to make a CF plate that raises the cluster about 1 inch towards the rider......and moves it 1 1/2 inch to the right......


Soooooo while it is hardening over night.......I will think up some designs.....methinks..... In the am.....off to hobbylobby for the foam, and I just realized I need more CF fabric. Ohhhhh....well.....One thing at a time......Until then.......

Nahhhhhhhh....... My " Darth Vador" is the CF beast......the 8gs will just have a few here and there.... The Gps is in fact wired back again to the underside of the plug.......and the plug itself is now switched.....red one is for the outlet.......green one for future use.....
