I offically suck at cutting holes in fairings for sliders.

....all the plastics are back on my bike now, though, after a 3 month hiatus.

Well...... Where are the pics? I'm sure it's not as bad as you think it is. If it's that bad we'll be honest and tell you.

I'll snap some pics. It's not terrible, but I'm a perfectionist and this is not something I'm proud of. One side is decent, the other side is pretty bad.

I'm thinking once I sand & prime the fairing, my shotty job won't be as noticeable

And then this side I originally cut the hole about an inch too low so I tried to get the hole saw to just enlarge the hole, but there's no easy way to secure the saw in place with nothing holding the center drill so I fucked it up

I don't know why I care that much, I was planning on getting race plastics or streetfightering the bike this winter, but this just gets on my nerves.

I was actually thinking about asking you for some thicker sliders. These are kinda puny.

Ya a 2x4 under the hole would have helped keep it centered.

Go to autozone and get some of that black slip on trim that they put on door edges on cars, and slip some of that around the hole, it will clean up the lines and make it look finished off.
