Default gold swoopies

Is it possible? Could a set of swoopies be somehow painted gold similar to the ghetto golds? And can anyone with photoshop make some swoopies gold?

I don't think it would look good on certain bonnes but I'm thinking more along the lines of a green 93

Well what Andrew posted is what would be a gold "chrome" as you can see from the reflection of the chrome showing through. A PAINTED rim like the ghetto golds probably wouldn't look good AT ALL! There would be no shine or reflection as you see in his photoshops.

If someone actually took a set of chrome swoops and painted over them, I would hunt them down.
