I have bit the bullet and ordered the three gas tank panels from Chicago BMW (under $500). I'll have the yellows as spares.
Removed the fork protectors - it's black forks under there and no ugliness. Self painted the rear underseat panels, footpegs and passenger footpeg brackets. Leaving the headlamp assembly silver. Black from tip to tail except for bolt heads and odd pieces here and there.
As soon as the left panel arrives, I'll replace the yellow and get pics.
