Default What type of paint for bulbs?

I'm going to do the clear headlight mod and I was wondering what type of silver paint I would need to paint the amber bulbs so that when they light up they turn orange. Also, if anyone knows where i can get the 168 parking bulb in amber i'd appreciate it. I can't find it anywhere.

168 and 194 are the same size. they are slightly different wattage, but not enough to make a difference in appearance. any autoparts stores will carry them. even walmart has many colors of 194's. as for paint, i once used model paint, but it was easy to spot the overlap on layers. try some model spraypaint for an even coat.

Ebay. LED conversions or the dim, painted versions. Both are dissapointing.
