Repair and Painting SRAM Red Shifters

I had a fall from roadbike due to the  front tire puncture 2 weeks ago. That result in damaged and scratches at both shifters, scratched at SRAM white wording and break at the right hood. The shifters and brake levers still working but those exposed carbon  were very ugly.
I decided to repair it my self  - DIY. I ordered a new pair of black hood, and bought 1 small can of black glossy pain. (white old pain already in store), fine sandpaper and a pair of small painting brushes.
I polished those ugly exposed carbon with fine sandpaper, and carefully painted it with black glossy paint. The scratch SRAM wording at left shifter painted with white paint. Still not perfect and smooth, but that okey for now.
Then the new black hoods was put in.
