[urq] Driving light restoration

Hi guys,

One of my Euro bumper's driving lights was assembled improperly sometime in 
the past.  One of the internal wires looped outside the case breaking the 
seal and allowed water inside the housing.  The reflector coating is 
basically gone leaving dull metal behind.  I was thinking of using some 
Eastwood reflector paint but while this could work for brake lights which 
see only intermittent operation, I'm afraid that the continuous heat of 
a  55 W H1 bulb would just burn up a paint coating.

Any BTDT's out there?  Powder coating maybe?
