ok,
i will get some video.
because the reflectors are made of plastic i first attempted aluminum tape but i could not get clean lines and it was all wrinkled, i didn't like it.
there were few options of mirroring them back as the factory finish but i was not ready to pursue.
i have used chrome krylon paint which does give quite good reflection. it is not the same as new ones but way better than what i had.
