    I wonder if you could use krylon spray paint for that and then clear coat it...either that, or go to a body shop...

    How long ago did you paint yours? ..wondering about the longevity of a DIY on the lids (since I just got mine in the mail today :D!) vs spending a few extra bux to use a bodyshop..
