I've been mulling the idea of painting my side cases and found your posts. I noticed that you taped off the badges on one set of cases and removed them on another. Do you just pop them off and how do you reattach the badges? Thanks for your help.

At least one of the bags didn't have the badges to begin with so I purchased new ones. At least one of the bags had the badges, but they were in rough condition. If they were good I taped over them; for the others I purchased new ones. The new ones came with an adhesive back so mounting them was simple. The old ones came off quite easily with a little prying.

Eddd, I did have one suggestion. My right side bag was really scratched when I bought the bike, and I did a repair and repaint. I like the idea of the bed liner paint. Often instead of "blocking" the sandpaper, I use spray mount to the sheet to double the thickness. It stiffens the paper and makes it easier to hold. Kinda in between blocking and single sheet. Also it is my preferred method for drywall finishing. Dave
