What was the factory paint finish inside '69 park light/turn signal housings? I have an original set that are pretty rough inside, and seem to have the remains of a white-painted finish, looks like it may have been gloss; is that correct?

Not sure what factory used but I'm thinking it was close to argent silver? I have read some using aluminum color spray can paint and white, too, but mostly a brite silver color probably would work.

My originals appeared to have been 'white', and since it was intended to be reflective, glossy white would be the most reflective...

I have restored dozens of the 69 lamps, they are white inside.

My rear lights were definitely a silver/chrome looking paint.

Come to think of it I believe mine was silver. I'll check when I get a chance.

Just to clarify, I was referring to the front park light/turn signal housing, not the taillight housing.

I think it's a good idea to have the info for both front and rear light housings.

Taillight housings were silver inside.
