Default I replaced my SSE taillight housings with SE'*...

Since I found a set of SE taillight housings, I put 'em on.
No delamination problems here.
They are actually quite a bit brighter than the SSE'* that came off.

Now I need to decide if I want to tape off and paint some kind of black stripe pattern on the SE lenses to give them more of an 'SSE' look.
Any ideas on what kind of paint to use on the outside of the lenses that will stay on?

My old 95 SSE had the SE tails. They looked good.

Good info, guys.
I'll keep the originals, just 'cuz I'm like that...

The pinstripe idea is good because it can be removed easily.
The VHT Nightshades paint is good because it'll look custom and fit whatever pattern I could come up with.

Thanks for the ideas.

edited to add:
Looks real good, willwren, but I only got redX'* outta the Greenzilla page...I like the NASCAR stickers.
I''m looking for the #3 & #8 for the sides of my car. Then all I need is those SSE emblems.
I'll have to get some current pics of my car and post 'em.
The sound clips never worked out right.
