Propane Tank Cover Color Change

I have a white cover on my propane tanks that does not suit the color that came from the factory. What I did was upgrade from 20 lb tanks to 30 lb tanks and the cover is white and I need a black color.

Any Ideas on how I can change the color to black.

I would like to do this without spending a lot of money.

Just spray paint it. You can even YouTube how to spray plastic. Clean the cover thoroughly and then spray with a plastic primer. Krylon makes one. Allow the primer to dry and then with at least two coats of the color you want. If done right, you should be able to do it for under $15.00.

Some of the Krylon takes a primer, some is made for plastic. I'd get that made for plastic if you can find it. Last time I looked for it I couldn't find the made for plastic.

Worse than releasing a bunch of halogenated hydrocarbons from a rattle can? Got to wonder which is really worse for the environment. Chop your old one up and use it to provide drainage in your flower pots.

It has nothing to do with saving the earth which is really screwed anyway. I have thrown away more things in the last 60 years than I care to count. I am talking about why throw money away if I don't have to?

I thought about this recycle thing which! Sorry! is not putting a dent in saving the world.
It is all about economics

Might want to scuff the cover with some #400 grit sandpaper then wipe with a tack rag before painting, paint will adhere better.
