RC51 Colin Edwards (Texas Tornado) question

Moved to Texas, and the moving van jacked up my 04 Hayden RC51. Squeezed it against the side of the truck and cracked most of the plastics. Dumbasses.
Using a damage claim to fix the bike, and I was actually wanting to go with the "Stars & Stripes" (Texas Tornado) paint/decal scheme.

Does anybody know the specifics on the paint colors, vinyl/decal kits, where I can find them, etc.?

Seven stars ???? Ebay china crap is all I've seen with that paint scheme, I would go with OEM stuff if they are paying/responsible for the damage. ??? Get proper stuff.

The cheap way is to go to FleaBay and get a complete Chinese set for under $500. The fairings come with all the decals installed and pretty much ready to go. I can only imagine what Honda would want for a complete set of plastics.

Upper fairing is $388.00 +tax
lowers are/ the cheapest I have found... $286.00 +tax
Tail section- $285.00 -No passenger cover

Being that those paint schemes are usually custom.. China is cheapest, thin, and brittle.. Don't drop it in the driveway..Fairing will shatter-Like "Pringles"
