Default Tail lights

Ok as you know I removed the relectors in my tails and painted the housings black well I don't like them already. So I'm going to put the reflectors back in. But since I painted the housings black they don't reflect now.

My question is would a can of rustoleum high gloss silver or chrome be enough to reflect the light in the housing properly again

Way to redneck a car to fix a problem you created.

I'd just go to a yard and pull some housings off of one there.

Well all the yards here
1. never have gt'*
2. want $34 a light

Also the car will more than likely be up for sale early next year so I don't want to sink extra money in it


Also I wasnt actually thinking about the rynalds wrap idea lmao
