Orange for front marker lights

Red for rear marker lights

Silver for parking lights

Stop light red or clear red paint for taillights

Silver paint pen or silver paint for headlights and wheels (a silver Sharpie appears more aluminum while silver paint pens or paints are more reflective.)

Flat black paint for grille

Decal license plates (optional)

Dust with powdered Tempera paints using a dry paint brush (can also tone down the overall shine of the finish)

Black for brake pad (or shoe) dust and tire weathering

Brown for dirt and dust

These cars have an interior that could also be detailed as well!
