Has anyone painted the inlay on a bass drum hoop?

I have an old marching BD I'm thinking about removing the wrap. My neighbor is getting ready to paint (another) car so maybe he could do the drum at the same time. The drum has black hoops with inlays. I originally thought about painting them all black, but lately I've been thinking about having the inlay grooves painted the same as the shell.

Has anyone here done this? Does anyone have pictures to share?

Attached drum shows 1969 bass drum with painted resonant hoop, (no inlay), and batter hoop that was missing the inlay so I painted the inlay area to match the drums.
Realize that this is not for everyone. Makes me happy. Go for it! Paint can be removed, repainted or covered.

I don’t like the look of the black resonant hoop and intend to paint an inlay on it someday.
