Anyone have a good method to clean off the grunge and restore items like the tail light housings and metallic ends of the pig tails. Trying not to media blast unless that is the best way. If I need to repaint these items what rattle can color is close to factory? Thanks in advance.

I don't do the prep work on anything but the outsides of the housings (the only part visible once assembled) but I do recolor them to factory correct. Paint will work for some but it will never look "correct".

There are some I recolored.

It's a dichromate process (not paint)
