Unfortunately, the spit release mechanism doesn’t seem to be able to be disassembled. So my plan has been to dab the button with Testors model enamel, but I have also thought about leaving it blue.
I’m also thinking about two-tone possibilties.
Rustoleum has a chrome paint, Troy, which I think would probably work on top of Krylon primer. They also have a comparable gold. Then there are some other possibilities, including “stone” coatings, so you could have a concrete look — good for construction workers who play on the job.
The finish looks good. We’ll have to see how it stands up to being handled over time.
