    Painted with a low cost spray gun in my garage. Black "truck paint" plus clear coat.

    Adapters were also bought cheap and rusty, but looked much better after some sanding and paint. spinners were bougth "new without tags" for a low price from a seller that had changed his plans.

    If you have patience, you can get lots of good deals.
