    use some fine wet and dry, then plastic primer and any car spray paint you like - Personally I'd use matte or silk lacquer too, as think gloss headlight interior would look odd.
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    I went the other way as the standard lights are gloss black inside so sprayed my FK's gloss black
