If it's a hard line, not likely. If it's steel braided hose? I doubt it would cause damage but because it's flexible it might chip and need regular touch ups.

Read up on what you can coat and what you can't. It'll most likely say on the container.

best bet for air lines is camo tape. easy to remove if needed for repairs. some painting would void warranty.

I agree with Niceguy74- camo tape is the best best becasue it will flex with the line- even if it's a short run of steel-braid, if you bang it against something, it can bend/chip. Camo tape (either the sticky kind or the camo-form foam styles) will take more abuse and is easier to repair if it does wear.

Heat-shrink tubing works aswell.

yeah...but only if applied the right way. HEAT + AIR LINE = Melt.

it would have to be done by someone who is careful enough, and knows how much heat to use on the shrink.

you are massively overthinking heatshrink and the amount of heat you need to shrink it. You can use a hair dryer to shrink it without any ill will on the line. Just don't use super rediculous high heat, go slow and you will be fine. If you used a real Heat Gun, then yes, you possibly could cause damage if you left it on the line for a long time. But a short burst, not likely.

I've done it...does no damage etc to the steel braided airline

it does chip and flake off a bit, because the air line flexes, but not a whole lot.
still effective camouflage instead of a bare metal airline.
