Silver

I voted silver, thought that WAS the way they WERE done, but maybe they didn't have chrome spray back then and chrome should reflect a greater amount :confused0006:

I do not know how leds reflect but in my experience with 1157 bulbs gloss white reflects better than either chrome or silver
Maybe someone has some actual hands on experience with using leds and can recommend a color???
Or you could paint each bucket a different color, reassemble the taillights and see which color reflects the best....best done at night:):rolleyes:

Bumping this up.....Looks like chrome is leading the pack....Kinda' makes sense.....If you were to shine a flashlight at all three, only the chrome would shine back....Guess that's another item for the chrome shop :rolleyes:
