Default New to me bike need bodywork/blinker advice

heres the bike with some pics
It has been park dropped and the right front blinker base is busted (on the fairing)
and the dash isn't sitting flush on the left side, it appears someone took off the fairing and missed a hook and clip piece
Im trying to fix it with some kind of aftermarket LED blinker set and inexpensive as possible
Pics:

I'm not sure about the fairing, but looks sorta like mine when I had my first spill. It broke off the right turn signal. I got Proton flushmounts and used Gorilla glue to put the fairing pieces back together so I could mount the turn signal

alright thats what I was thinking about I have used gorilla glue on fairings before, does anyone know of a bigger blinker that would used doublesided tape and cover the hole all together? I have looked around and haven't found much.
I have thought about the mirrors with blinkers in them but dont want shakey mirrors either, If I could find a good set of mirror blinkers I would probly shave the OEM blinker spots and fiberglass them

These a bit larger, yet can still look sleek and nice.
Triangle LED Flush Mounts

Any one know of any good mirrors with LEDs in them? I'm looking for a good set. I took a spill and all I have left is the mirror

I also installed the proton flush mounts they are simple to install and are very bright and low profile

If my fairing wasn't damaged as much as it it I would definately do the protons. But I dont think they will be an option for me the way it sits now

the protons sit on the little "step" that is there after you take the OEM signals off I dont have that anymore on the right side


see, not much "meat" left on the fairing

You could just cover the signals right up and put LED strips in the intakes
