It actually blends quite well. You have to be looking at it pretty closely to notice it's black and not blue. For example, my wife couldn't tell until I pointed my bright halogen work light at it and pointed it out. When I told her I was thinking of painting it to match the body color she thought I was nuts, saying there was no reason to, as no one would notice. More risk than potential reward was her opinion.

Unfortunately I'm a bit of a perfectionist with these things. I'm waiting on making a final decision about painting it until I get the car out in the sunlight and get a really good look at it. It's been raining for a couple days, so I've only been able to look at it under artificial light in the garage.
