I wouldn't put plastidip in there. You'd have to open the assembly just to touch it up. I would prep and paint surfaces inside the housing, which is what I may/probably will do. Ever since considering doing a retrofit I've been contemplating painting the reflective surfaces black, probably gloss black. If I do paint the surface(s), I will definitely prep and paint it as best I can, and I'm definitely no professional. There's some very basic rules to painting (prep, prime, paint) and it will definitely last longer than plastidip.
