Propane tank mod-LEGO style

I am researching if it's legal/safe to do this to one of my 20lb tanks that I refill (never exchange). It should be the hit of the cookout (or campground).



I thought it was hilarious and figured my fellow travelers/grillers might too. It will definitely get attention.

Propane Tank RV Mod Puts a Smile on its Face, Literally.

I'm sure some person with a stick in his/her butt would find a reason to find it illegal....but I like it.

This what I have found on NFPA 58 so far, but I think it pertains to the big above ground cylinders.....but would probably suffice for the portable ones too. Yellow should pass:

6.6.1.4*

Aboveground containers shall be painted.
A.6.6.1.4

Generally, a light-reflecting color paint is preferred unless the system is installed in an extremely cold climate.
Steel LP-Gas cylinders and ASME containers are painted for corrosion protection. Although NFPA 58 does not stipulate paint colors, color does affect the rate of heat absorption from solar radiation and the consequent pressure in the container. This heat absorption can result in operation of a pressure relief device in very warm climates. In very cold climates, a dark color may be appropriate to enhance propane vaporization in the container. Vaporization will not occur below about −40F (40C).
White paint with a titanium oxide pigment is able to reflect 90 percent to 95 percent of solar light. Yellow paint made with a medium yellow chrome pigment reflects about 80 percent of the light. Aluminum reflects about 70 percent of solar light. Other colors reflect less than 15 percent, and black reflects no solar radiation.

Evidently a lot of folks don't pay much attention to the regulations.
