    Default 85 back up lights

    The chrome around my backup lights is wearing off. Am I correct in assuming that is chrome paint? I'd like to touch mine up. Thoughts?

    It's vacuum metalized aluminum just like the dash trim and turn signals I believe.
    Look into what model car builders use for bumpers, I believe its Mylar.
    I do have one NOS RH 85 442 reverse light for sale on gbodyforum.com but the chrome has some light scratches.

    How about starting a post in the wanted section, you will get the proper visibility instead of putting it in some random post...

    Most time this chrome paints gets off and makes lights rubbish. I never use it
