Default $11 Shop Light

My Shop Light new color reflectors. Since the HD DP shop light is 2x better then the White paint/Steel Paint shop light I went ahead and got myself a can of spray paint to spray the inside of one of my old shop light from walmart.

Light is still being 24hr dry, rub my hand on the paint and kinda got some paint stain on my hand after a 3 hrs of drying, hopefully this doesn't go on and hope the paint dry dry.

I do see a HUGE change on the brightness, and reflectors show more bulb then the white paint. The after reflectors should be better (finger cross).

$11 for the shop light, $4 for the paint total of $15 over a $35 HD DP shoplight.

I'm thinking of Sealing the paint from future damage from like scratch and stuff. Any idea what to do?
