mounting "S" mirrors on my RS fairing

Has anyone cut into the fairing on their RS. what is the best method? I am going to mount the K1200S mirrors on my K12RS over the weekend. I have a picture of some pretty good homemade mounting hardware that bolts to the cage. i can do the metal fab but have never cut into the plastic fairing before. Any sugestions????

It's just plastic. Dremel tool, file, and drill are all plenty to do the job.

Sierra Cement: Good for skis, bad for knees.

If you have the metal fab figured out you have 90% of the job figured. The metal is the only thing that has stopped me so far from doing this.

Like they siad, it is only plastic. Start small and move out.
