I have always painted my own things like this. My last was a wine press, I painted the embossed letters while over a powder coated black base. Use "One Shot Paint." All different size brushes can be purchased a Hobby Lobby. Don't try and paint everything in one day. Just using the word "Perfection" from above, paint all the parts of the words that go up or down first. Let it dry, tomorrow, paint all the parts that are on top of each letter, then the next day, paint all the round parts of the letters. The small "Standard..." letters near the bottom will require a much steadier hand, really take you time doing these. Always work on the letter that is further away and work toward you.
One reminder to all of you. These lids are not interchangeable, a lid from a Bennett will not fit a Tokheim dispenser. Once they are off the dispenser, it is difficult to determine what dispenser they were originally on.
This really sounds like a good project we could all contribute to here on OG. Just like we have a place where we show all the cylinder sizes, we could have pictures of these lids. If you know who made your dispenser, take a picture of it and after someone starts a thread, the rest can just add to it. This should not be just for lids such as above, but even lids that don't have anything on them. If you post anything, please have the picture show the hinge and where the lock goes, and equally important, a measurement and the Model Number.
I used to have a number of embossed lids, but they are all gone so I won't be of much help.
