I saw this done in a magazine.
If you can find red reflective stickers, cut out circles and place them on the lights in the respective places. The result looks really good in the end. I'd put up pics, but can't scan, no scanner. Look for it in Scale Auto Enthusiast, October 2001 if you have access to back stock magazines.

Go get some Testors or Tamiya Translucent Paint. When i painted my ITR tail lights i just used brush on Translucent Red. I made my tail lights all crytal red even the back up lights.

Use a permanent marker! Red and orange ones come out clear! It works excellent!

like someone said before sharpie premanent markers. You just have to do it on the back of the lights so when u spray a clear coat it wont run.

Clear with that chrome ting on the back looks intense. Just make sure you get the Crystal clear clue
