Inspired by this thread, I've dug out my set that I was restoring, and finished them off (nearly)
Might apply another couple of coats to the lettering yet.
Was surprisingly easy - I used a new kitchen sponge, cut into one inch lengths in a sort of reverse potato printing method. Block sanded the lettering a little, then two coats of aluminium primer and three light coats of red enamel. More lighter coatings give a much better finish than trying to get too much paint on at a time...
Not everyone's cup of tea, I know but I am aiming for fresh out of the factory on my engine bay
