Has anybody used or know about Fast Fairings kits?

I posted this in another area and got no answers:

Aftermarket Plastics...
Does anybody have feedback or knowledge of this aftermarket plastics offered on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2000-...Q5fAccessories

My Son went down a while back and is looking to get back on the road and to work on the cheap but doesn't wanna waste his money. The OEM complete set is over $2,800 but comes more complete with pads, insulation etc. However, the cost difference is tempting and he is a mechanic so a little hole drilling to make things line up shouldn't be a problem.

Anybody have a clue? :dontknow:

Now we are looking at Fast Fairings. They cost a little more but are made in the USA and the quality is supposed to be better. The cool part is all you have to do is send a photo and they will paint to match.

Anybody seen their work before?

UPDATE...
Well he bought the Fast Fairings and did they fit like crap! First of all they are NOT MADE IN USA! Only warehoused in Georgia! His were sent direct from China! Shipping time 4 weeks, not the "FAST 2-3 days shipping direct from the USA" like they said before you order. No returns on special orders. Seems everything is a special order after you call them back. RC-51, special order, plain white paint, special order! Says it comes with all heat shielding, zero on his, nothing but plastic with blemishes in the paint. The trunk lid was flat as an arrow and the tail is curved big-time, so he had to glue the lid down and pull it into shape with bungee cords. All but one hole had to be opened up, which we figured might happen, but there was a couple missing tabs also. This stuff is junk if you are looking for something with factory quality paint and fit. Support was very rude and zero help after getting the parts. I wouldn't suggest these guys to anybody!

He now knows why I buy nothing but OEM parts for my vehicles. It costs allot more but after you get over the bite of that they look just like they came off the showroom floor.
