    I'm in the process of customizing my Masterpiece Rodimus, and one thing that continually bugs me is the dark blue headlights. I don't want to paint over them with a flat yellow/orange, or just slap a derpy silver on there. Is there a way to drain the color out of the lights without warping them? Or, barring that, a place I can buy some good metallic orange paint?

    Or, candy coat the head lights. That is, coat it in the most reflective silver you can find/afford (you don't need alclad, just a reflective silver will do), and then after that's dry, apply a coat of clear yellow over the top of the silver.
