E-ZPass question?

Has anybody painted their E-ZPass black so it's not so ugly in the windshield and if so does it cause any issues with working properly? I'd think it would be OK, but haven't tried it yet.

Not what you asked... but I got the version that goes on the front tags (i do not have a front license plate) it sits where the dash and the windshield meet insied the car.

I don't believe the paint will affect the signal, although I never messed with mine. Don't mount it or mount it behind your inspection sticker.

cool

yea, I figured it would be alright.... Can't see paint having any effect on it. Just didn't want to be the jackass in the E-ZPass line holding up traffic if it didn't work
