Yes, the ball caps come off the top of the posts. It would be hard to spray paint it on top of the powder coat may be more acceptable to peel. Would want to strip it and clean it and use acrylic paint.

Hello houston59, Thank you for taking the time to post your question. The standard drive through width on an installed St. Augustine dual 12 ft. gate is 11' 4''. The gates are able to swing to a open position of 90 degrees. Depending on your installation conditions, they gate can swing open to slightly more than 90 degrees, To make the gate post installation as easy as possible dig the holes approximately 12” wide, 20” long (the elongated side should run parallel to the driveway). Do not make holes perfectly round to help prevent posts from twisting after time. Depth of the hole will depend on whether the ground is level or sloped. If ground is flat, holes should be approximately 42” deep. We will also be contacting you before we ship your gate if any further questions come up. Thank you,
