    The paint is a good fix...

    Another is use strips of metal backed duct tape... I did the tape in my Cobra Jet housings and compared with the reflective paint, never could decide if one was better than other... That was over 25 years ago, tape is still in there...

    The front parking light buckets came painted white on the inside to help reflect light.
