I've debated painting my center taillight white many times. I like how yours looks, I may finally do it now.

Though, I'd make the reverse lights square. Yours has a weird triangle thing going on with the reverse lights.

What type of paint did you use? Regular car paint, or some special paint designed for plastic?

How did you prep the center section?

How many coats?

Did you color match off the VIN code, or did you bring your gas filler door to the paint place?

Did you use an air compressor, or did you have the paintshop put the paint in aresol cans?

for the molding i sanded them a bit, and painted them with a color match from the vehicle(computer camera for automotive paints), the rear center piece i just scuffed a bit with steel wool and repainted with the same paint as for the moldings, however the paint is a bit brighter than the rest of the car, probably due to the age of the original paint, but from a distane it looks really good. just a couple of coats to cover the existing colors, and it was done by spray bomb.
