Plastic Battery Pack Cover

Have any of you painted your battery pack cover to match your bike frame color? Thinking about it for no particular reason other than for something to do. 😁

Black is beautiful (for me), so no.

If you intend to sell at a later date, I'd leave it black.

I painted once, but then when I wanted to sell it and buy a new one, I faced problems. So on the bike, I have now I haven't painted something

Can I ask what kind of handlebar bag that is? It looks big enough to be worthwhile.

Have you considered PlastiDip? I would think a single aerosol can would be enough to coat that battery numerous times which improves the ability to remove easily. Clean the plastic well, tape off the parts you want to not have coated, and go nuts. Easily reversible if you don't like it or need it to look original again for resale reasons. $6 at Lowes for an 11 oz can (I can't link it since I'm under the 10 post minimum, but if you go to Lowes and search "Plasti Dip" it comes right up with various colors)
