Has anyone painted their door hinges?

My hinges are the only part of the body besides mirrors and window brackets that the paint is garbage. Has anyone taken them off and tried to paint them to match without having to blend the doors?

Yep. Just did it. I took them off and sanded them down, prepped them with acetone, and then sprayed them with rustolem or similar product. Did the front and back bumpers too. Seems to do pretty good.

I took the mirrors off of my Jeep and sandblasted the metal based, sprayed self etching primer on the bare metal and then sprayed it with Dupli Color truck bed liner in a spray can. Worked great.
