Painting intercooler. YES OR NO?

Can I paint my after market intercooler???As it is looking a bit dull and I want it back silver and fresh.

I don't intend to put a 1mm layer of paint on it and block the fins but I will do 2 or 3 light/dust coats with silver paint. Anyone done it and any problems???
