i used a primer (Krylon Fussion -> bonds to plastic) and black krylon fussion however i recommend u just do the black kyrlon, i found the white was a waste of money the black sits really nice.

i picked up from canadian tire.
Also after u bake ur headlight and pry them apart let it sit for 30mins to cool down. mistake i made was taping them up right after and the glue from the tape stuck to the amber light.
