Has anyone had luck refinishing the inside of the hood-mounted marine light? If so, what was used to remove the remaining residue of the original port/starboard colors (w/o melting the clear plastic lens) and what colored paints stuck nicely to the plastic w/o looking badly orange-peeled?

Thanks --Larry

Larry,

Try denatured alcohol to remove the old Red and Green paint. If that
doesn't work, hobby shops that deal with plastic cars have a paint
remover that works without damaging the plastic. Such a shop will
also have Testors Green and Red translucent spray paint for plastic
in small cans. This paint works well in this application.
