#1 Switch surround

Post by andyf » Fri Apr 20, 2018 3:23 pm

There would appear to be silver paint around the toggle switches which has faded. Is there a simple or easy remedy as I am not that good with fine paint brushes! Or do most owners just put it down to patina. Is there a "chrome effect" answer, or am I looking for an answer that doesn't exist!

Yes, it's just silver paint. Deep breaths, steady hand, fine brush, well thinned paint* - you'll be fine :thumbsup:

I used Humbrol enamel on mine.

It was easy with it out of the car and all switches removed.
