Any paint shop computer people here

Howdy I was wondering if anybody here could do me a favor. I don't like the look of my heat exchanger on my car and I don't like it being a black plastic with a rough texture. What I was wondering is, if I get a good picture of it on the hood can someone color it to match my car so I can see if I like the look or not before I head to a paint shop.

Thanks Mike

We have one guy who says he can, but never has...
Think I've seen a few members post work they've done, maybe they'll chime in.

IMO you should leave the hood as is, if anything I would dress it up by wiping it with a couple of armor all wipes to give it a little shine!

Thanks I understand I should leave it alone but something in me says it should be changed. I will buy a new heat exchanger to be painted so there is no wax etc on it. It is dirty right now because it is stuck outside for a bit but I do have some Jax Wax shine all I use on it

I actually would also like to see a heat exchanger paint matched to the hood
