Im not sure bud...someone will supply you with the answers you seek. my gut feeling is that it isnt the greatest idea and wont hold up very well with the wear and tear of the road

i wouldnt recommend painting(coats are thinner and weaker). so chipping would be more probable. get em powdercoated, which is very very durable and longer lasting. unless you want a quick cheap look then just tape em up and spray can them suckers yourself, but they will soon look like crap.
