    Get the parts repainted/swapped by a third-party. Short of upgrading to an M9-P that's the only way I know of.

    I wouldn't touch an M9 for painting. I painted an M8 once and it was a nightmare...desoldering flex circuit boards, among other things. Coming from a circuit board manufacturing background, I have the necessary experience, but one false move and it's an expensive trip to Leica for repair...
