Can I spray paint under my hood?

As the tile says, can I use spray paint under the hood to make some plastic epoxy black?

My focus had some weird stuff going on under the good when I bought it, and one of the hood bumpers were broken, and the hood arm thing was broken. As you can see below, I fixed them with some plastic epoxy and they are now as strong as ever. But they are yellow...

Can I spray them black while they are in place? Or could I ruin something?



If the battery looks weird, its because its the wrong size. Thats getting swapped on Tuesday. I am also working on fixing the cracks in the plastic and the front, and just cleaning everything in general

Did you do the "modified" snorkel delete? Or was it like that when you bought it?
