Springs are not painted but coated with flexible material, somewhat like a shrinking hose. Removal requires correct tools. It will probably be cheaper to get a spring in the desired color for the desired load than to coat the spring.

Cheers

Re: rear shock, rd07a

Ok, but... to take off the coil/spring, i'd have to remove the gas thingy. Would i then need to get someone to re-gas it or something? Surely there must be some kind of flexi-paint product out there. just an idea at the mo'.

you dont need to remove the gas thingy. you can undo the bottom bit of the shock and remove the spring through there.

I painted my spring with black hammerite with a 1/2" brush, no rpep, just a wipe with a rag - and its still there 2 years later - in fact, its stuck to the spring better then anything else I've ever put it on. Nice.
