That`s interesting. My DIL has the white k-x kit but I thought the hood was black. Might be a custom hood or maybe a later production than hers. Sorry can`t help more.

I've seen these before. Mostly Japanese/Taiwanese/Chinese variants had color matching.

You can just get a JJC hood or a pentax hood on fleabay for pennies. Mask the inner surfaces, spray the exterior (minus the mounting areas) with a flexible paint and you're done.

By the time you're done, including paint, you might be at less than $10.

Go to a hobby shop. They'll have flexible paints for plastics there and the knowledge on how to do what you want. Just make sure everything is clean before spraying and thin coats.


Don't know about the clear coat. Depends on how flexible it is. Hobby shops can help greatly here.
