I'm an Auto Body Tech so if I had to I would paint some but I'm kind of looking to find OEM Black ones as the factory paint won't peel off and is way more durable than anything I could paint them with. Ask him how much he wants for them anyway. Also, why is plumber in quotes?I know "a plumber" has some flares. they are not black though. Wouldn't imagine they would be too expensive to paint. He might be able to get you a good deal, shoot him a pm.
btw, I used to live near lake oswego. I miss portland. still one of my favorite places
