Painting Td5 Hinges Black

So I have a set of new take off Td5 Hinges in alpine white and they don't match my truck as well as I'd like. Instead of repainting them white I was thinking about painting them black to match my sliders, bumper, cage, etc. What do you guys think? What brand paint and in what "black color code" should I use? thanks justin

I like appliance epoxy in spray cans.

Ron...I know your one of the 12 LR Gods...but I'd feel kind of weird painting my hinges with Krylon/Rustoleum. What do people repaint their bruch bars/external cages with...powdercoat? Does powdercoat have a color code? Or have people just sprayed a generic flat black paint with whatever color code? I have a good cheap painter...just wanna do it the right way!!!

Then have them painted the matching white color.

Ron is not a goddess of love and beauty, rather he is a jealous and spiteful god whose followers espouse the creed of "ends justify the means," achieve Ron-good results, and worship at a shrine of galvanized steel. It should be noted that the sect's Rovers do run, are capable of 83 mph, and are wheeled at least once a year.

I don't care for the black-hinges look, because it simply looks like you didn't want to pay to have them painted by a pro or to take the time to do it yourself well. To each his own.

Anyhow, powdercoat is a process, but not one well-suited to color matching. Even satin black looks different depending on the manufacturer of the powder.

I just like doing things so that I don't have to do them again and don't care too much how they look (hence galvanize everything). Appliance epoxy black paint is the toughest paint I have found available in a spray can and actually looks pretty nice if you properly prep the part first. It is much tougher than regular paint.
