Default Paint coming off springs

Before I loose all ID markings, is there any paint that will stick to springs that will stay.

Losi / TLR marking are way too little.

Thanks

Nail polish, cheap and comes in tons of colors, with small brushes to make the job easy.

Agreed, I think both Avid & Tamiya actually ship pieces of appropriately colored heat shrink with all their offroad springs now(& I definitely like it that way, can put it wherever you need it)....

Heat sink has limited colours. Great idea
Wish it came in clear

Nail polish.
Wife thought of this. She thinks it will chip easily.
Give it a try

Any other ideas?

Some dremel/grind small notches at the tail end of the springs. Different number of notches for each rate.

I do think nail polish could chip. It's not really meant for the abuse a spring may take.

Ohh, good idea. Just don't forget notch numbers!

You can also use these labels on Amazon.com to keep them tidy in the toolbox keyring style.
