Thought I’d leave a note here just to follow-up:
The hard cases can be purchased as separate parts although the painted half is expensive!! I’m going to refinish my old one.
“Colorrite.com” can provide paint codes, touch-up paint and more for BMW’s
Bike FX in Surrey is recommended for professional results but haven’t been there yet.
BTW,…..I like riding better than repairing, but sometimes you just have to.
