A 2$ spray can, spray into the lid + use a brush?

Either that, or a hobby store/arts + crafts store should have something.

We have a place called resene over here, they're paint specialists, get a test pot from the equal in SA. (they're about 4$nz)

The area to be painted would help a lot here. (small? BIG?)

You can get flat black in a can, indeed.

If needed, you can add some paint thinner, to make the paint thinner (best to match them carefully).

I'm toying with a flat black ceramic paint (for engines) for my case mods. Cheap and effective (so far).
