Has anyone managed to repaint M950 era components. I wanted to refinish the combo changers where there is slight thumb wear on the handlebar clamps. These are starting to get rarer and it would be nice have an option. I have tried my local auto supplies without much success - got close but not good enough. It maybe that this is an anodised finish but it seems to wear too quickly for that. Interested in any suggestions, maybe someone has already found an answer.

I have a similar colour but I've not tried it against anything yet. I'll put some on my shifters now and see how it goes. Remind me to check it on Tuesday!
