I have also used brushes to touch up Harley Davidson frames where they get some abuse from road junk, and also where the older models would dump battery acid onto the frame from the overflow tube that was not installed properly. Sure it works very well.I still believe in spray painting my engine components. Some times you would do this to match the outside paint, the body paint.
Try a few drops of acrylic or urethane catalyst in the brush enamel. My experience is that it will harden any enamel that it is put into. Do a test patch first though.
