If you replace the grille cloth and use the grilles, you shouldn't have to worry about the look of the woofers. However, if you must paint them, Parts Express sells some woofer gloss paint that's supposed to give the woofer a wet look. Use as thin a coat as possible as you will be increasing the mass of the cone and thus alter it's performance.
