Sure you can...but the big questions are:
a) How much do you want to spend? and
B) How much do you want your airplane to weigh?
Three coat system...a layer of paint, a layer of metal and a clear coat. Even if the metal weighs the same as the paint (highly unlikely...my bet is the metal is heavier), you're still at double the weight of a standard paint finish.
Doing just the spinner, or the spinner and wheel pants probably won't affect your overall weight that much...but the entire airplane? I think you'd be looking at a significant weight gain.
