show m your painted diff covers

my TJ is black, and I'm thinking about painting my diff covers either red or orange - can I see what you guys have done? also, anyone paint their springs or trackbars too?

It's not the actual cover, just the rock ring, but here's mine. I'll paint my springs eventually, but it's a matter of trying to get the motivation to do it.

The covers are black
But something kind of like painting something on...

It is a halloween mask that has mounts welded onto the diff cover...So it can be removed.
I only display it on select trail rides.

I would paint mine but every time I smash it into a rock I would be afraid the greenies would come looking for me for polluting their world.
