I think the lights, is just a surface with a diffuse material, with a reflection map and an RGB output utility/map - it should produce something like that,

For the silver paint, use a falloff -> fresnel in reflection, and also a fresnel in diffuse, with a slight grey to light grey gradient ramp on it. , also try some fine noise, 0.05 in the specular colour box. with the colours for noise being light greys.

That should give you the effect for that.

If not exactly, tweak some settings :)
