    Painted orange reflectors looking goood.

    Got minor scratches along the leading edge of the front bumper and across one of the orange reflectors. Although minor, I of course has to have it fixed. And in the process, I had the body shop guy paint both orange reflectors the same color as the car. Came out great, and light does show through them when turning. No longer have to look at those ugly, out of place reflectors. Shop only charged $50 to do the reflectors.

    Just wondering what paint did the guy use? I'm thinking if this can be a DIY project.

    Re: Painted orange reflectors looking goood.

    Had it done at a body-shop while a minor scrap was also being repair. He used the same paint that he used to repair the scratch (Glacier Blue); however, on the orange lens' I believe that he used a 10-15% blue. One can't tell that the lens' have a thinner paint job (color intensity is the same as on the car), but when turning, definitely see the orange. The lens' can be gotten to by removing the TOP 2-3 bolts that hold the felt wheel housing liner in place. Bend back the liner (don't worry about it wrinkling, it goes ba into place) and pop out the lens'. Somewhere on the forum there is a post describing how to do this. Really looks neat, go for it.
