    Painted front lights?

    I saw a blue mk3 gsi with lights painted the same as the car a few years ago in a mag then saw a mk2 golf with purple painted lights the other night.

    always wanted to do this but wondered what paint had been used to allow enough light through and how it would affect MOT.

    any ideas?

    Sure it wasnt just the plastic bit inside the lights that was painted?. The same bit youd paint to give that smoked look.
