I've got a pair of them TMasters on the /2....
I rattlecanned 'em up to black...they looked OK...until I forgot the Golden Rule to LOCK the latch on the lids.....one flew off and was smithereened by several cages behind me....

I actually had fun fiberglassing it back together....
....sanding....bondo....sanding...more bondo....sanding....
Yer local auto parts store sells "filler" primer....it's a lot thicker and richer than regular primer....all rattlecan of course.....
The newly rebuilt lid came out lookin' a lot better than the rest of the stuff...
I do like the way the hard luggage follows the designs of the /2 designs....
The point is....if your ridin' that thing...you're gonna ding up them babies sooner or later....so why spend $1000 to have them professionally perfect?
You're gonna bugger 'em up....if you're using 'em....
Sandpaper...and lot's of it..is the best stripper for fiberglass......
Elbow Grease makes Eveything taste better!
