So due to the winter the glass lense broke and the salt kinda tarnish the reflector.......so i was thinking of painting it and adding lexan lenses and 3000K hids.

What should i do to prep it? and apply silver or black out the reflector?

EDIT: i meant the reflector

Was thinking of just cleaning the surface and spraying it over with this product, http://www.homedepot.ca/webapp/wcs/...artial&Ntx=mode+matchall&N=0&Ntk=P_PartNumber
I have seen on a site that a guy used this to paint.........not sure if he prepped it in anyway.

its not that bad, just read the steps before you start, at first the bumper may seem hard to take off. Some of the clips is a bitch to get off though.

I have literally taken it off and on more than 5 times in a day, its a lot easier now.
