Metalic Leafing Pen to the Rescue

Submitted to Community Café

I found an awesome 70's vintage Sansui receiver at a flea market recently. Stereo equipment from the 1970's has a classic silver (aluminum) front faceplate and sought after warm tone. This one works great but cosmetically it had some scratches on a non-metal trim piece surrounding the dial numbers. I was going to decant some Rust oleum metallic silver from a spray can and paint it with a brush, but discovered the leafing pen in the aisle.

I'm sorry to not have the "before" image showing worn black marks, but I do have the masked-off receiver right after painting image. As you can see from the final image it all worked out with professional looking results. Thanks leafing pen!
