painting my G4 regulator

Im planning to paint my G4 regulator because it has a big nasty scrathes on the reg and it's killing me lookin at it. The the previous owner used a pliers to dissamble the reg. So I had enough of it I want to paint it myself, but Im too cheap to get it professionally painted. Has anybody painted their gun here before and what kind of paint did you guys use?

Fine grit sand paper + thin coats of rustoleum= good enough

I've had good results with..duplicolor spray paint. I used "perfect match" automotive paint on some barrel fronts. You can use some clear coats to make it shiny and a little more durable..but I'm not sure of the effects that heat curing with leave. Or you can cure for "7 days". :/ your choice..lol

Re-anodizing would be my choice tho. They can match the color and finish. Or change it however you'd like for a fee. But also.. what if the paint you use doesn't match perfectly, wouldnt that bug you just as much as the scratch?

or tape it with like hockey tape works well and is cheaper. Although the exalt is more of a permanent solution as you may need to change the tape.
