Thank you to everybody for the kind words :-)
unclebear: I first cleaned all of the components with hoppes #9 to ensure I was working with a smooth surface that was free of dirt. I then used nail polish to paint over the engraved text areas, as well as the slide serrations. I waited about 30 minutes to an hour for the polish to dry (depending on how thick of a coat I laid down), and gently wiped the polish off with a NON-ACETONE nail polish remover. The engraved text areas were easier to clean up because the paint was able to sit in the grooves and I could just gently wipe the surface right over them. The slide serrations were much more tricky, and I wound up using q-tips and toothpicks to do the fine detailing. Then just repeat as many times as necessary. The pink came out great by the 2nd coat. The green was a different brand of nail polish and took about 20 coats to get to where it is right now. I'm considering adding a few more coats to make it a little more vibrant and to cover up some of the flaws I missed initially.
