What you need is a product call Evercoat made by Dap, it is about $38 for a pint of it, but well worth it, a 1/8 thickness will bend 70 degrees without braking or pulling a part from your panels.
The real trick is in using a good primer, you will want to scuff down the area with 120 grit paper where you are going to be applying your body work, do not use any cleaners, the plastic is porus and will old enough of the cleaner so that you would have problems with it sticking. Once your body work is applied you can sand it down to the 220 grit stage, then you need to get some plastic adhesion promotor to spray on the areas where you have broke through the paint on your panels, I use a product called BullDog it helps the primer stick to the plastic. you can use any high build primer, do the first few coats very lightly and let them dry completely. the feathered edges of the paint work can react to the paint that is on the bike, If it starts to lift or wrinkle you will have to sand it down to get rid of the soft paint and start over.
If you need help in any part of painting your bike we would be more than glad to help you out, you can call us at the shop 8am till 4 pm est and either Rob my shop foreman or myself would be glad to offer you any assistance we can..Bob
