Default Green Laces?

Just thinking.

I bought a very decent set of gold laces, But I was thinking.... What about painting them Dark green? (you know the color of my car) I think it'd be a cool project. Is it a huge pain to paint them since... they're laces? do I just rattle can and clearcoar over the gold or is it more complicated than that?

they would have to be SUPER clean before you paint them, otherwise it should be OK

Probably look similar to those early 90'* that had the matching Aerolites(is that what they call them these days?). You should try to get a few not so good ones to do a test first and see if it looks good, no sense ruining a decent set. Personally I'd save the golds and try to find some gray laces to spray.
