Well, you can paint alot of stuff but any of these guys will tell you the key to good results is prep work. I would't paint a hose, I don't think it would last. Also, it's gonna be tough to keep white stuff white.

Well, it's all up to you. I like mine beacuse it's different, there is not another one like it in my area. Being unique can be good and bad though. Mabey a dark meatalic blue would look cool?Whatever you do, don't paint it purple!!
