Is there a special kind of paint i can use to paint some bulbs?
I bought some foglights and i thought they were gonna be blue, but turns out there white, can i use high temp engine paint?
I just wanted the fog lights for show purposes.

I used to paint my taillight bulbs when clear tails first came out. I wasnt paying $20 for a pair of 3157's. Anyways I used high temp engine paint, darkest I could find. I only drove it on weekends and had to repaint them every few mths cause they would turn pink. But foglight bulbs get really hot. I wouldnt paint them.

you can buy bulbs that light up different colors including blue
i rode around for almost a year with green bulbs, and my whole lens was green
then a state trooper nailed me for that , my truck being lowered and my third brake light
