not that i know of, all the people that i know that have done this have bought the dressup kits on their cars. Unless they make some paint that is especially for rubber, but i havn't seen one yet, since most are for plastic/metal components, and the paint will just eat @ the rubber.

Painting hoses would be an absolute disaster. Would look good for about a week then expansion/contraction, heat and flexing would take their toll. Just replace them with some silicone hoses or covers if you must.
