March 12, 2006Okay, so I'm cheap. Having kids will do that to you. I also don't necessarily like to buy something just to buy it. I like the alternate reverse lights out there, and some of the chrome covers too, but I just hate to spend the money. So....I taped off the clear lens portion, primed and "chrome" painted the red reflector portion, and voila...here is the result. I also painted the screw tops, and one portion of the clear, to give it a uniform look . http://ptcruiserworld.tenmagazines.com/showownerpic.asp?u=3861&n=90190&pos=1
I used the Duplicolor chrome paint. Of course...it doesn't look like chrome, but it's not bad. My cell phone pic isn't the best, but it should give you an idea of what it looks like. Hopefully it's not illegal to paint the reflector portion! It came out very clean. No runs, no drips, no errors.
