I bought these on ebay and believe they are a definite restoration project. I have sent photos to Brad . I want to ask whay sort of paint I would use to repaint the earpieces. I know I am going to have to buy a Tap and Die set to make repairs to the bars that attach the earpieces to the headband but I cant see a issue with that. I just want to work out what sort of paint will stick properly.

I find that full gloss enamel sticks best and in hardest wearing as far as household paint goes though if you are able to get your hands on a pressure pack of black engine enamel this will wear even better. Try a motor parts place for that. Supercheap Auto, Repco, etc. Spraypaint will also help preserve the stamped markings on the metal as the coat will be thinner but more even.

Prime the surfaces first for best results.
