Hi guys,

I wanted to restore the white paint for the dashboard light controls (Fuel, High-Beam...) of my RD03 (and I would not mind to do the same for the RD07).

I thought my patience would have been enough but I found out the characters are too small for free painting, even with the thinnest brush, and for the same reason, to build a mask and above all cut the characters is very difficult if not impossible. You can see my attempts on the picture but I did not progress any further.

I think a mask can be done and cut by a machine.
I wonder whether any of you has done something like that and it is for sale.

Thanks!

Off the top of my head originally they would screen printed on - Could be refurbished with either DIY transfer (like used on old model kits - though printing white is problematic ) or similar and get it printed on clear matt vinyl which can printed on with white ink with specialised printers.

I've done custom m/c speedo faces for Honda VTR using Adobe illustrator, sending PDF vector artwork to local Vehicle Vinyl cutters firm
