    Looks great! A little bit of clear polyurethane will work.

    How does semichrome compare to flitz as a polish?

    I just used this method to solve a non-shaving problem. I have a craft paper cutting machine with a setting switch, whose numbers were hard to see. (Black numbers etched into a black background.) I added some white Testor's paint & now I can see the numbers.

    Anyone know if this technique works with the numbering on Fatboy's and Slims?

    When restoring golf clubs we apply the paint with a cloth. Let sit for a few minutes then apply Mineral Spirits to a cloth and quick wipe over the lettering and/or numbers.
    This might work with your system Tom. Thanks.
