Inner Fairing (Now Carbon Fiber ) Hydro Dipped

Ok so I have a FLTRX, but really like the blacked out front end ..so I am getting the Front Wheel, Lower Fork Slider, Fork Slider Tins and the Plastic bit that sit above the tins blacked out. I am considering blacking out the engine guard as well. The other thing that I was not keen on was the flat black inner fairing so I have also pulled that off the bike ..now if I just paint it vivid black it will look great ..but I was maybe thinking about getting it wrapped in carbon fiber ? Any other suggestion would be welcome

Always loved the look of carbon fiber accents on a bike...

OK so the update is I found someone to do hydro dipping. I am getting the Inner Faring, Air Duct, Nacelle/Speedo-Tacho Cluster and Glove Box Lids. It will be done in a Carbon Fire Gloss Look .. He said it will take about two weeks .. I will post some pictures when I get it back before and after fitting it to the bike. He also said due to the shape of the fairing that there will be some stretching of the dipping process mainly where the fairing mounts below that area and he may have to fade it out to black but will let me look at it before hand...

Some Pix and Need a little Help

Ok so I got all my bit back from hydro dipping. I have re Assembled it and I am very cautions when I pull things apart .. I did this in the house and when finished I put all the hardware screws and bolts in a plastic bag and tied it to the faring frame .. but I have two alan cap black in color left over

Thanks, I believe that the screws are in fact the one that go behind the speaker grill's.. 4 weeks is a long time to try and remember what went where, but I had obviously group those two bolt with the fairing because that's what they belong to.. I just didn't want it to be somewhere behind the outer fairing. The fairing is not going back on the bike until I get the forks back and new factory 47 handle bars installed .. I am waiting on paint for the rest of the front end as well as some more funds ... I take on any extra work to fund the project and it is only funded buy the extra income .. so it can be a slow process..
