Do you want the letters masked? Or just the white covered up. Black duplicolor vinyl and fabric paint works well.

i need the whole button just painted completely black since most of the paint is already worn off on the top 4 so i'm just gonna paint them black for the car shows since i dont have 80 bucks to buy the buttons this week. 3 of those 4 top buttons dont even have the letters on them anymore (havent seen before i got the car) so yeah lol
