I painted mine a few yrs ago in my Bronco. Also had the external trans cooler in front also. I painted the rad black and the trans cooler red. The painting is a good appearance touch, but just remember to paint it is light coats so to not over spray the cooling fins and clog them up to prevent air flow. I also put a laydown of Ford lettering to paint over so that the ford showed up throught the grille, The middle section I painted Blue and the over lay in black. Turned out nice. But it is better if you throughly clean the rad of any corrosion and oil residue. Also, for better adhesion, prime coat it first.
