Just a hint that worked well for me today. Months ago I had asked the forum for the best way to repaint the white letters in the emergency flasher bracket. I received a good tip that said to glob the paint into the letters and then wipe off the surface with a silicone kitchen spatula (or whatever those things are that you use in baking to get the last stuff out of the bowl). Then follow up with alcohol to remove the remaining paint. I tried this but the alcohol I used was strong enough to ruin the bracket's black paint. I repainted and then used a q-tip and some simple green to remove the excess paint. It worked great!
