I have a 70 and want to try to redo some extra marker lights I have sitting around. I am more interested in what to use to coat the inside of the assembly with to get the amber light to reflect like it should. I am guessing it's some sort of silver paint, but not sure. Also, if I take out other lamp assemblies, can the same paint be used on them as well to reflect light?

White reflex the best but if you paint these lights white, they look kinda goofy

Tony is correct! White reflects the best.........Here's a photo of the tail light as an example, their really bright using the stock bulbs. I used an enamel Rust-Olem product after a thorough cleaning & light sanding of course........
I started out with Nothing........I still have most of it!

I'll try silver on the front marker lights and white on the rest that I eventually get to. They have been sitting in the shed for a couple years and havn't gotten to them yet. I guess I should plug them in to make sure they work before I put any effort into them.
