Default wide open customs fairing

I recently installed a wide open customs fairing. I plasti dipped it myself. I installed 4 polk audio dxi525. Along with a kenwood kiv-bt901. Flush Mount usb 3.5 mm that I ran to the back of the head unit. Let me know what you think.

That looks totally wicked Ninja
How is that going to affect the load on your alternator and battery, and is the stereo weather resistant?

Also how is the plasti dip applied? Is it just sprayed on?

I haven't noticed any big flux with the charging system. All the x bikes have the same charging system. So the hardball has the same as cross country. So since I am not running anything heated it should be fine.

Now the plasti dip I got was out of a rattle can or more like 4. Just you tube some videos it is pretty easy. Just wipe down for the prep and spray. It comes off by peeling it away. It is pretty tough stuff from what I have seen so far. I did sine experimenting a little bit before I went and sprayed the fairing. I might have been a little nervous. If you look in the picture the windshield trim on the front was Chrome from wide open customs. I sprayed it with the smoke plasti dip. It now Los like brushed aluminum.
