Painting binding ratchets
So the ratchets to my Rome 390 Bosses have been failing recently - they won't engage, especially in the cold. I got in touch with Rome support and Carl sent me out some new ratchets - awesome!
Would it be a bad idea if I wanted to paint them? Nothing crazy or ornate, just wanted to add some highlights to my setup. I don't want to ruin the ratchet mechanism though - what (if any) paint would be OK to use for this endeavor?
