I am sorry to say I don't have anything good to offer.  From personal experience, I can say the paint is very fragile, if it touches anything but air, it will take some paint off.

I don't have pictures but I used clear car wrap on my Versys colour coded panniers. It was pretty good and you can get it in different thicknesses. I was able to peel it off when I sold them and they were untouched underneath. It will help with small scuffs and scratches not real gouges.

Not this actual stuff but this kind of thing -

I used a kit from Hornig.  A bit fiddly to put on as is most of the clear protection products.  Has held up well for a couple of years.
