If you're one of those type that cares less of aesthetics.. get yourself a paint tray liner and a roller and dont forget to brush in your corners.

But if you're looking more for a pleasing look closer to what was the factory finish. The only way you're going to achieve that is to at the very least aerosol spray it or take it to a semi professional locally for a couple $100 if your time is worth more than that.. Maaco or Earl Shieb and at least let them fire hose it for you.

Primarily to stop the White streaks which run off the cap, but pleasing not perfect. Thanks
