Endurance Fairings.

I'm in Australia and my ultimate aim is to restore my RC to be a Daijiro Kato/Tohru Ukawa Cabin replica from the '00 Suzuka 8 Hours. I've spent a long time thinking about this one and it's the way I want to go.

This means getting my hands on a set of endurance fairings.

It's looking like no-one over here is able to help me (TurnOne have told me that they've stopped working on RC's). Can anyone give me some advice in this?

Also... In going to need the paint codes for this scheme. Has anyone else successfully pulled this job off?

Thanks!

There is/was a member here Mighty Max in Singapore who had his bike in Cabin colors.
I haven't seen any posts by him in quite a while though.
It may take some search effort, but there are photos of his bike on the site.

Didn't Dr. Dildo also have the Cabin colors? Seems like he put up a few pics of his bike, I think he may have entered in one of the BOTM's.

For fairings I recommend armour bodies. Highly reviewed and amazing stuff. Super flexible.

Note the need for HRC or modified subframe.

And they have a distributor in Australia

There are a lot of cabin builds at speedzilla.

Been in touch with Nick. Really helpful bloke.

Just a question. Are your fairings GRP or carbon fibre?

Just interested as regards how the GRP looks.
