when the plastic cover is installed, you can't see any paint............. anyway, for better heat drain you'll paint it black...........

actually, you can see the very front of the aluminum cover. i believe it is 3" X 10" of the actual cover that shows, it looks like a goldish/silver and i'm just trying to find out the correct stock color. but thanks for the advice !
