When I picked up my project 78 GL1000, all covers and many parts were off the bike and in two boxes. I did a quick inventory of the boxed parts and verified 2 side covers were there. Now that I'm at a point of putting covers back on, I discover what I though was left and right side covers turned out to be 2 right covers. So I have been looking on e-bay for a left cover with no luck yet. Will a 75 - 77 cover fit, or must I limit my search to 78?

It has to be 78 - 79.
I was able to pick up a cover on e-bay. It was cheap because a chunk of it on the top that has the front hanger tab was missing. Fortunately, I was able to cannibalize the extra right cover I had. I cut out the piece needed and welded it in using scrap plastic and a soldering iron.
I believe the paint code on this cover is NH1 black. Is there a dupi-color paint that will match this? I won't be repainting the entire cover, just touch up the repaired area.
