Are there any companies who fill in the "SAFE" and "FIRE" selections on the receiver in red and white or is this something that you can do yourself. I have seen a couple of companies who produce them this way and wondering if there was a way to get it done to any receiver.

You can use a paint pen from a hobby store, a china pencil, or crayons.

Go to a hobby shop and buy Testors (Enamel) hobby paint. It work very well on metal. Also buy Enamel Thinner and a brush. Paint over the roll marks.You don't have to be precise. Let the paint dried and with a patch or paper towel dip it in the Ennamel Thinner. Whip the excess dried paint out.

that's awesome. you get to stay another week!


paint pens work best. from most of the pics posted, I think wiping with the thinner afterwards doesn't make the letters as crisp.
