Sure, scuff up the housing and hit it with self etching primer...then whatever color you want.

You sure can. Just like goody mentioned, scuff it up good with a 3M pad, hit it with teh primer and then lay down about 6-7 coats of a good rattlecan paint. I only did about 3-4 coats when I did mine and it worked like a champ/

YMMV
