Front marker lamp restore

Recommended Posts

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 paint will reflect better than silver, I just used silver on my housings because that was already on it, I'd use white if I did it again however

If it's the turn sign assembly in the front bumper, you paint the [outside] silver

 

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'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.
