I am in the process of trying to make my headlights functional on a couple of my tractors.
I am wondering if anyone has used a CHROME (spray) paint to paint the headlight housing so there is more reflection for the 1156 bulbs.
I know I can make some mounts with more powerful lights, but I don't want to "jerri-rig" it.

I've actually used self adhesive aluminum foil, it works very well ! much simpler and a better end result.
