if you use a trasparent black paint, you can get the black chrome look of the CTR lights.

Tamiya has good quality transparent paint.

for a better seal, after the paint dries, put it back in the oven to melt the glue a little, push it back together, wait to it to harden a little and heat it back up again so you can push the housing some more.
