Airhead battery cover replacement

My right side battery cover is pretty chowed and I'd like to get a new one. Do the factory replacements come painted? If not, anyone have a good source for getting one painted? My bike is the burgundy "Bol D'Or Red".

I've been looking at Ebay for almost year and I have yet to see that color come up. I figured I would just bite the bullet and buy a new one if they are available.

New ones come in primer. Last one I got, I took the painted one to a shop that matched paint and puts in in a rattle can. They did a pretty good job. Wasn't cheap something like $25 for the first can but ended up well worth it.
