Painting Black on Taillight Bezels?


Recommended Posts

I did it as follows:

 

- Rough sided sponge (kinda like a Scotchbrite pad) to clean the lens really good.  This also acts like a fine sandpaper.

- Rinse and dry, then tape the insides.

- Rust-Oleum Bedliner because it's what I had but I'd recommend Rust-Oleum X2 paint+primer unless you want a slightly textured surface.  Wouldn't hurt to use a separate plastic primer first.

- Once dry, remove tape and do a couple coats of Rust-Oleum clear coat on the entire lens.

 

Turned out looking really good and I will be doing it again on my red truck.  Makes the lenses look brand new.

Thanks, I’ll have to do this soon. I’ll post pics once it’s finished.
