Paint over the clear cover. Lightly sand down the stripe area....and tape off the rest of the light. Get your paint, and spray it. I did 3 coats. You can even clear coat it if you like to get the glossy look back. Good luck!Kingbingy said:THanks all. About painting the taillight, how would you go by doing it. Would you take it apart or just paint over the clear cover?
