Yeah, I know, it's a wierd question. Twenty years ago a neighbor built an impressive fence along the road. Brick columns spaced every 10' or so with wrought iron fencing between. Looked great. A year or so later, he had the bright idea to paint the brick columns. Bad move. The brick finsh would have lasted forever with little or no upkeep. He's now got a maintenance nightmare. One of these decades he's going to get the bright idea to sandblast the paint off. So far, he repaints every 5 years or so (always a different color!). Each time the paint start to peal it looks worse and worse. I've got four runs of solid copper core RG6 extending from my eaves down 10' the siding to the dish. I almost painted them to blend in with the siding until I thought of how sometimes paint is not a good idea. Has anybody ever painted their cables outside? How did it hold up? In my particular case I have left over latex paint from a recent paint job. Call me anal, it's deserved; but, while your calling me names, tell me your experience in painted cables.
