You could always take them off entirely if you like the look. Certain paint jobs make it look better this way. I've been wanting to do this but don't want to deal with taking my front bars off just to get the padding off
Regular spray paint will make them stiff and probably flake off in a most unsightly manner. I wouldn't do it unless you are prepared to replace them or remove them all together, but keep in mind, occasionally a noggin comes in contact with them, and sometimes they are used for holding on to, and bare metal is hard, and hot or cold, depending.....
I'm not certain if Smitty makes sport bar covers. Rugged Ridge does, as does VDP (theirs are all in camo).
Bestop's are designed to look like stock. I doubt anyone would ever really see the difference between ours and the factory models. BUT this might be true for the competition's as well: I've never really looked at their sport bar covers.
Someone was making fat puffy covers, but I'm not sure who it was now.
