Default Budget headlight reflector coating

Vinyl wrap does work. But that well, but if you don't habitually drive at night, this measure should suffice for another year or so of driving.

I am restoring an old tractor headlight(5 inches diameter) that will be mounted on the front bumper of my '31 Coupe. The reflector is bad, so I am using Rust-Oleum Bright Coat Metallic Finish in a rattle-can. Color is labeled "Chrome". It puts out a lot of light.

I used Rustoleum Chrome on the insides of my Studebaker bumper guards, where chrome doesn't plate well, and the chrome looks great and will keep it from rusting.
