What paint do you use as I believe the original ones would have been anodized?

Great job on them Paul, i love that finish. I need to do my CB400/4 ones really, i will get round to it one day. Trig makes a fantastic job of refurbing all the switch gear for our restorations but i would like to have a go myself. I get in a bit of a mess with paint though 😀😀😁

Looking great Paul. Little things like that can really make or brake a restoration.
Julie I make a mess with paint everyday.  ;D Theres very little chance of me doing mine as anything that is remotely like being at work gets ignored.

Looking great. Like Julie, I'd be interested to know what paint you have used. Do you 'flood' the on/off etc with red paint using a thin brush and wipe off the excess?
Post a pic of the finished article, the Z650 looks a stunning job.

Yep I use the Simoniz tough black satin paint and then humbrol enamel. I just use a cocktail stick to flood the text and leave it for ten mins or so. Wipe off the excess very lightly with some paper towel with a bit of turps on it. The turps takes off the excess enamel but does not affect the black. You must get every bit of the old paint out of the text. I use a scalpel for this.
