Suggestions for what to paint on there? Whatever was on there looks to be a thin black enamel. I was thinking about black nail polish... anybody got better ideas?
The camera's from the late 50's isn't it?
If it's black trim it's either enamel or lacquer. If it's the pressure plate it could be anodized or possibly painted.
If you paint it use a spray & several very light coats.
