the problem with painting one is the black ones have texture, the oem silver ones do not. and they are shaped just slightly different.

so is your current single black cap the same texture/design? you could paint them all? or is the black cap the other style

----------

just a fyi. I have black ones that are the same shape/texture/design as the silver ones

no. i'll try to get a better pic tomorrow. the silver ones are smooth, no texture. and the way they meet with the needle is a little different.

these are the two I have that vary from stock ranger/expo

so with that. I would trade you a full set of the blacks, so they can be painted. For your 5 irregular ones. If you were interested in doing that

the second pic is close, but still not quite the same. and as i said before, i don't really want to paint as i haven't found a color that matches the factory silver.
