Making incremental progress.
Good news... the dash fits perfectly in place and I figured out how to add it to the bike so it's independent of the fairing. That way if I lose the fairing, I don't lose the dash.

Bad news... the fiberglass looks like crap. I'm going to try one more plug, then may fall back and use a nice piece of hardboard or solid wood board that's been sealed to the nth degree. I want the light weight and strength of fiberglass, but need a nice surface. Starting to get impatient, which is never good. Must. Not. Rush!
