Painting would be substantially cheaper. Replacing the actual parts is a multi-hundred dollar endeavor. Painting, a fun day's work, and idunno, $20?

tape and a razor. tape over the lens, making sure to press it deep into the corners of the lens, getting complete coverage. then slowly take a razor and go around the outside edge of the lens and you'll end up with just the lens covered with tape.

when painting just about anything you need to rough it up slightly. the primer will adhere much better if it has something grab onto. you don't want a low grit paper, something high, proabably like 300grit or higher. just enough to give it a "rough" texture.

No problem. I need to paint my sideviews, and door handles, but I'm going to wait till it isn't 100*+ outside.
