    Thanks to Joe B. sending me his to be my spare.
    I could not find a silver color in Krylon Fusion so I used a Rust-oleum.

    Taped it off with some blue masking tape. Kinda shitty job but I think its ok. Besides you can't tell by looking at the pics.

    2 coats of silver here. Letting sit for 30 mins between. Would have waited longer but will be leaving in the morning and it was looking like rain.

    I have some Clear coat, but want to let the paint dry atleast 24 hrs before I spray it. However I am leaving in the morning for a couple of weeks. We'll see when I get home. Enjoy.

    I have a similar one. I could not find anything but Matte Aluminum from Krylon, then I clear coated it. Turned out pretty snappy. Your looks great.

    The paint I used says nothing about heat. I am taking a chance I suppose. The paint only says avoid painting surfaces that exceed 200*F. We shall see.

    Thanks everyone.
