any ideas to brighten tail lite housing?
I just cleaned mine up good and went with some silver.
Want to get really reflective material? Sticky backed chrome wrap cut it to fit.
Like red72, I cleaned mine up, and used a flat aluminum shade of color. I was happy with the results...
We always used what we called Mexican Chrome. Rattle can "Chrome" paint.
That's what I use. Zero issues.
It looks like the shaker can is working out! paint should work out!
Looking good. The problem with that stuff is that it takes a while longer to cure over normal rattle can paint. Let it cure for a day or two.
I used the mexican chrome to restore my tail lights. Came out great.
Your tail light housings look great. How did you deal with the pitting in the metal?
Repop bezels and lenses. Too expensive to rework and replace the original pot metal.
I've often wondered how it would look lining the inside with silver reflective tape????
That's pretty much what I used, except it was polished aluminum tape, but I've always wondered if it would be brighter by using crinkled aluminum foil to create many reflective facets. Might try that one day if I get bored.
