Yeah nice shape. Get some fiberglass cloth. a gallon kit of epoxy. Fiberglass , Epoxy , Composites, Carbon Fiber - U.S. Composites, Inc. or other supplier.

Lightly spray the pink board with super 77 spray and lay on a layer of dry fiberglass. I would do it in pieces. Mix your epoxy and paint it on the fiberglass cloth which is glued to the pink board. You can tell that the layer is wet out when the fiberglass cloth becomes clear. Use disposable brushes. Consider covering the wet layup with strips of rip stop nylon particularly over seams.

Once cured the rip stop can be peeled off and you have an ideal surface for a secondary layup.

I would do a single layer at a time to lessen warpage. Make sure that you have the fairing taped down. Duct tape is an excellent mold release.
