I've seen a few people have painted their overflow bottles, how has this been done? is it painting the outside of it? or is it paint on the inside? any help would be appreciated (im also not sure which thread to ask this in)

That was the one I was waiting for. Otherwise we would have view ports in Engines to check oil levels too, but still, so many people don't and the sensors can't always be relied on, especailly cause they often come on once its too late.
