I have one that I had painted and I ordered the premium hinges. They don't fit correctly, looks like I may have to grind down the lip of the top. Anyone else have an issue?

Yep. Same exact problem. The abs is too thick for the premium stuff to work. I tried grinding & its stil not gonna work. I've made up my mind to switch to an oem pak & lid. I scored a brand new primered lid on ebay, & I've got the bottom on order from boardtracker hd. I was just going to use the new lid on my old bottom, but nothing lines up. My old pak is as sturdy as can be, but I spent the $$$$ on the premium latches & hinges & by golly I'm gonna use em!

Yeah I know it sucks, but your route is way cheaper than the way I'm going. Someone will snatch up the hinges from ya I'm sure.

Took TP and Premium hardware to my local high end body shop and was told that he can get it to work with little effort and free!
Keeping my fingers cross as I leave for a 3 week road trip to fla in 2 weeks!

Pics of completed job.
Aftermarket TP with premium rack and quick disconnect, tether, King back rest, got it from an add on HDF for $200. Winds up when meeting the guy I grew up with him and his family moved out of state 40 yrs ago. Small world.
Custom dynamics run brake light strip $125
Painted Harley fairing patched the holes from King backrest and painted candy orange. $400
Premium hinges $50.
Not bad.
