I used the Tamco products on my 944, and loved the results. I will see about sending the piece down and seeing how deep the cracks go sometime soon then I think.

Thanks!

Just an update, now that I finally got around to working on this bike again. I sanded down the tail fairing where almost all the cracks were at. What I found was the fairing had been repainted multiple times, and I never realized before, but I'm pretty sure one of the coats was something like plastidip. I think it shrunk in the sun causing the paint to crack. I believe only the tail fairing has this coat of plastidip, but I will know more when I sand the others.
