Well, with the addition of my billet grille my radiator is very noticeable and I was wondering if it is okay to paint a car's radiator. Since the radiator is brand new and clean I figured now would be the best time to do it. Will this have any adverse effects on heat dissipation? If you have done this to your car please post pics and state what kind of paint you used. Thanks, guys. :tip:

I have done it with many cars, for the same reason. Never had a problem.
Any spray paint works. Most radiator shops paint them black anyway.

I painted mine last summer with semi-gloss black engine paint. I have not had any over heating trouble.
