Have you guys ever thought about painting just the reflective surrounds on the inside? such as this:


All it takes is just a little heatgun or a warm oven (250degrees for 2-3 minutes for plastic housing and reflectors) to melt the glue and some glossy transparent paint.

Its a basic DIY. All you need is a flathead screwdriver, an oven, and some transparent paint.
