After the body shop replaced my front indicator they put back a standard orange bulb and not a silver vision! :mad:

What did I do? Slight spray of silver paint over it - works wonders!!!! :bannana:

There is a universal primer that bonds paint to anything. Goes on clear, dries in an hour and retains the strength of the chemmical bond. Saves having to touch up the paint.

I dont know the name but next time i am in the garage I will write it down.
 
Done the same mod to my bulbs about a year ago - used thin layer of "plastic decoration paint" - 99p from the "cheapie" bin in halfords.

Dealership replaced one of my front bulbs in germany though for some reason, so I have one orange and one silver now - need to get around to sorting that !!

what's the deal with silver bulbs? Silly question perhaps, but what's the difference?
Saves having the "fried egg" look when used in clear corner indicator housings.
