Default radio buttons chipping

I guess a common problem with the 2005 is the radio buttons paint chipping. I've been told to use a sharpie to color up the white chips. Has anyone used a touch up paint, I'm guessing a satin black or charcoal would be the preferred color.

Redoing the ***** is a prefered route indeed. Be sure to use plastic paint for the plastic *****. Available in many colours and sticks like glue. Scuff up the plastic parts and wash with alcohol to get rid of oil from the fingers and spray all the ***** with two or three light coats. Then they will be better than new.

Painting the ***** is probably the best way to go, but I just use permanant marker every few weeks on mine and it keeps them looking decent, plus its a lot easier and quickerthanpainting them
