DIY: Ugly washer fluid tank painted black.

Well, this isn't really a DIY, and I don't know if anyone cares enough about how it looks, but it really bugged me.

My windshield washer fluid tank was this ugly yellow faded color and just a big eye sore in the engine bay, so I wanted to do something about it.

SO UGLY!!!


Took it out:


Cleaned and sanded down the whole thing, then taped up the holes:


There was some slimy sludge at the holes, near the pumps, and on the filter screen, so cleaned and rinsed those off really well:


Primered and sprayed several coats of Flat Black:




On the side that is most exposed when in the car, I put a thin strip of tape, so that when it was painted and I peeled it off, it would leave an exposed line so I can see what the fluid level is at:



Before and after!!!




Thanks for looking!
