just a tip for you if you are completely restoring not just touching up, clean all the old paint off and use a good primer...paint the body of the plate with several coats of yellow and let it dry a long time( you can use a hardener with some paints so check first for compatibility). i mask off the letters after all is dry/hard it does not have to be perfect but the nicer the better...use a stripping tape 1/8 or just cut some 1/2 blue tape smaller(makes the radius easier to get on. ..cover anything you want to remain yellow. spray the plate black (light coats not one heavy one be patient!) and clean any areas you need to. DONT RUSH TO GET THE TAPE OFF!... it will pull up if you are not careful. you can touch up any missed spots with a fine brush or stripers brush if you have on...some paint the whole plate and either sand or try to wipe the 2nd color with paint thinner ..i think my way is easier and cleaner. takes some time but in the end you have a clean/nice plate.
