Can you elaborate a little more on what you mean by shift plate? You have to excuse me, im a redneck and a little dense at times.

I just used ordinary lacquer thinner to remove the original paint then masked it off and repainted it; using a semi-gloss black from my local True Value hardware store. Looks as good as new. The paint that gets onto the raised lettering can be removed with a toothpick after the paint fully cures and you can cure it in your oven at 250 degrees for about an hour (otherwise it takes about 3-4 days in open-air).
