DIY Silvervisions

For those of you who have done DIY silvervisions....has anyone used white high heat rustoleum instead of silver. The problem I am running into is that they do not blink as bright anymore. Even with a light coat of silver paint.

That's what i like about the silvervisions. You can see alittle orange when you look into the lenses, but they light up pretty bright. I'd say just as bright as stock only the color is more like a volvo yellow/orange instead of dark orange. It still looks 100x better than the stock bulbs.

hehe....looks like u oversprayed those 2 sets of bulbs.

Yeah, i've had some failed attempts myself. Just a light spray will get rid of the egg-yolk effect and allow enuff light to get thru.

I like the fact that my sprayed bulbs don't blink as bright anymore. Also, I tried to leave the bottom of the bulb unpainted and I love how the bulbs look when on. Its kinda dark, but the light eminating from the bottom of the bulb looks pretty cool.
