Hi there!

My first post on the forum. I'm building a Sub 5.5kg FM066SL Stealth (Celeste details) and was wondering if anyone of you have any suggestions or experience with removing or covering the red details on the Xpresso 12's. Handpaint, sanding, powder coating, any ideas?

Something like this would be a nice endgame:

I'd take a marker and carefully color in the white parts. I really doubt any imperfections would be noticable unless the viewer kneels down and looks closely at the pedal - and who would do that? Think of "perfection" in terms of viewing from 5-6 feet away.
