Closest thing to chrome I ever tried. Looks like pollished aluminum. Must be careful with though it runs real easy.

I was looking for something like that to do the hogs head, since my rear end don't have the type to replace. That, and some flat black, and the rear end would look brand new. Thanks for the tip.

I bought it but haven?t used it yet. I was thinking of spraying the insides of the taillight housings to see if I can possibly make the taillights brighter. Or maybe I should try a different bulb.

try checking the grounds for your lights first S-code, it can make a world of difference!

They actually recommend painting the housing white. White is actually more reflective than silver or chrome. Seems to work for me.

I?ve just kind of felt that the tail lights on all old cars should be brighter compared to what I see on newer cars. My grounds are good!

I have a few extra taillight assemblies so I?m going to have to do some experimenting!

I think I saw in Eastwoods newest catalog the other day- a product specifically for this. Or maybe you could try heat and air metal tape you could get at lowes or somewhere, It's highly reflective and sticks to metal real good.
