Repaint the battery box?

Has anyone tried repainting the battery box to have it blend in better to the color of the bicycle? Any issues you would expect to have doing that?

Re: Repaint the battery box?

I painted it black. I didn't want the big "BIONX" letters standing out and I wanted the battery to blend better with the bike. There's a partial picture here. I used spray paint for plastics. The paint chips off if you nick it against something, but in the 6 months since I painted it, I hardly ever bump it into anything, so the paint still looks good. Just make sure you clean the case before painting. I didn't do much cleaning before doing mine.

Since I asked the question, I should go ahead and follow up with my results. I couldn't find anyone who could/would paint match, so I went ahead and used Krylon spray paint to come close...
