Tupperware Tabectomy
Written by bdpickett on 2/10/2010 at 04:19 am

Actually, MSRP for the "COWL SET, L. FR. (UPPER)", p/n 64214-MR5-870, is
$358.53, and the Service Honda price is $244.52 + s/h.

And yes, I can build up a brand new tab with Plastex, or PlastiFix, or even with
my plastic welder and supply of ABS stock, however, it would be a LOT easier to
simply attach a tab salvaged from a broken fairing, if I can find one.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! But I'm still looking for a salvageable lower
rear corner from the left fairing.

Be seeing you,

Tupperware Tabectomy
On Leland's PC Annual Tour (P.A.T.) last September, I added to the first day's excitement by scattering bits of Blue Pacific and myself across the countryside. I have since recovered, and I am attempting to do the same for BP. I have collecte

    You can EASILY rebuild the tab(s) with Plastex (http://plastex.home.att.net/) or one of the other similar products that others have posted in the past. You can even reinforce them with a little piece of

          How would I attach a new tab to the broken fairing? Once the tab and fairing are shaped to fit together as seamlessly as possible, they can be connected together in a couple of ways: 1. thermal welding 2. solvent welding The fir

            Wish I'd known about this a couple years ago! Could have saved myself a ton of JB Weld madness (which all subsequently cracked anyway). 4 oz. of 100% Acetone for 97 cents at Wally World next to the nail polish remover! A syringe or even a
