For white, or off white numbers, I use refrigerator touch up paint. Comes in a small bottle, with an applicator brush. Paint the lettered area fully, let it dry, then clean the overage off with a rag soaked in lacquer thinner. Works for me! [:D] By the way, when I did this to my Bushie, the emblem and lettering came out very unattractive looking. It's cut too deep or too wide, or something (???) Anyway I cleaned it off by scrubbing w/a lacquer thinner soaked toothbrush, and it's my only AR without white markings and lettering. Only mention this so you won't be surprised if you don't like what you get w/your Bushie. My Colt and Rock River units look just fine w/the stuff.

thin paint brush and testers model paint. Use a paper towel with clp on it to take of excess. just a dab of clp then wipe over the letters works great. Used this to do the safe and fire on my rifle.
