used vice grips and a clamp the hold the pieces together (by the way, the mounting hole fortunately snapped into place, so it held itself there)

It's looking good to me. At least you've now got something to work with!

JamieDaugherty is an unknown quantity at this point
I found some 2-part expoy type plastic repair at the local ACE Hardware last fall and it did a great job on the ABS fender I was working on. It sanded pretty nice and the paint stuck well. I'd suggest giving that a try to fill in those spots. I can't remember the exact name of the product but I think it was made by Devcon.

Good base.

On another note, I couldn't get past the Dr. Doo advertisement.

what not cut that section off of another fairing and have only one straight line to "weld". I posted this before but everyone seemed to ignore my suggestion...

Because that would require an entire Kawi green fairing?

oh. I was assuming he was going to have to repaint it. I have a trashed blue fairing that is perfectly intact on the bottom. I would personally think it would be easier to transplant a section rather than piece together a bunch of fragments. just my 2 cents.
