What. . . you guys don't just look at the nut/bolt and grab the right socket
every time?   <grin/sarcasm>

I have a lot of various sockets and wrenches that have stamped markings 
which are hard to read when your under the car with low lighting.  I 
wondering if anyone has "blackened" their tools to make the markings 
more readable, similar to the etched easy to read sockets.  I was 
thinking either use liquid electrical tape or gun blueing.  Not sure 
either would be durable on a chromed tool.  Has anyone done this?
