Quote from: RDPipes on June 03, 2022, 01:02:34 PMHas anyone developed a way to restore a WE dial plate WITHOUT a funky laminate.We all know the RED numbers rub off after time and the way I'm thinking is there'sgotta be a way to paint them back on with a stencil or by hand, etc...

A cutter could be used if the correct font (and size) could be found.An adhesive would be required to help prevent paint bleed. Individual numbers may be difficult to work with and spacing would need to be very precise. Due to the nearness of the numbers an adhesive could cause paint lift on any work already done. If all numbers were on one stencil the surface would need to be flat to prevent stencil lift (and again, paint bleed). The numbering could still be damaged when dialling, even with a clear coat over.The good news is small cans of enamel paint are cheap and easy to buy, I have a few, and even the smallest cans go a long way.
