Spraying your lamps is allowed and it is Legal, However be aware of the following :

  • When illuminated the lamps must produce the correct colour light.



  • The light must not be execivly dim.



  • You do need red reflectors fitted to the rear of the car so if you spray them with the rest of your lamps you can buy them cheap and fit some somewhere else.


Top Tip :

Dont spray them too heavy, start with one coat and then see what it looks like, you can always do another coat but you cannot take it off if you spray them too heavy.

Hope this helps ?????

When spraying them , mix a little two tone lacquer into your paint, then there is no chance of your bulbs not showing through...
