    the easiest way I've seen to do it is make sure all oil & grease is removed from the area you want to paint, use a small brush to fill in the letters, wipe excess off with a cloth & let dry. the paint should stay in the grooves & you're done.

    1. Apply paint to letters. Do not be conservative. Apply more than you think you need to fill it in.
    2. Let pain dry.
    3. Spray some brake cleaner onto a small shop rag or paper towel and wipe away excess paint.
    4. Do not clean with an ultrasonic cleaner. It will remove the paint.
