I am assuming that you have one of the removable metal screens or perforated metal covers.


Either find a suitable color in a spray can, or use a small trim roller after rolling out most of the paint on a secondary surface. Use multiple passes with a very dry roller with a very light touch. Too much paint will clog the perforated cover.


Hope this has helped

Hello jmac3742!


If your covers are fabric, you may have to choose a fabric dye.


If your covers are metal, several light coats of spray paint may do the trick.


The instructions on most spray cans say, "Three light coats are recommended ... wait at least 30-minutes between coats."


Normally a spray can is held about one-foot from the surface.


You can ensure that your covers remain open by moving the spray even further away from the surface ... creating a much lighter mist onto the surface.


My number one instruction when executing a project like this is: Do Not Get In a Hurry!


If you need help slowing down, set a timer for 30-minutes.



In cooler temps and moist conditions, spray paints dry slower.


Allow extra dry-time under these conditions.



When in doubt, contact the manufacturer for assistance.


You might find that purchasing factory-made covers in a suitable color is less expensive than modifying your own.
