Composite Parts Installation Guide
The customer must inspect each fairing on receipt to determine if it is the correct part for the anticipated location before changing the appearance of the part in anyway. It is important that you fit and install parts before painting! This not only allows you to check fit first but enables you to do so without scratching the paint.
Important: Inherently fiberglass is a stiffer material to work with than the original plastic fairings. To aide in getting a quality fit and especially for installing brake fairings, upper gear leg fairings, etc., soak the part in HOT water(160 to 180 degrees). This will make the fiberglass more pliable to aide in slipping over gear leg fairings, etc. and/or conforming to the mounting surface. Soak for ten to fifteen minutes then install and hold in place until cool. This procedure can be repeated as needed.
Caution should be taken when installing fairings that may come in contact with metal parts that move or are subject to vibration. Make sure that there is adequate clearance between the parts or put Teflon tape on the part that may wear. Examples are: Upper Gear leg fairings, Brake fairings, and Lift Strut fairings, etc.
