apparently if the housing is in a g6 that is newer than 2006 then its hard/impossible to reclose them. personally i don't know how easy it is paint them or how good it'll look. maybe pick up a cheap used pair of 05 of 06's and do it.

yeah, its extremely difficult with newer style. they have to be 05 or 06 with the black sealant to be able to take apart and paint. mine were easy. but the gray sealant suck. they are good looking, but dont take them apart unless your looking to color match.
