I would say no. It's probably not conductive enough for the job and it would be hard to get the traces from not touching. I haven't heard anyone being successful with it. I thought the same thing but am too chicken to try it. I don't want to fry it. I will try to get a conductive pen soon though and try that.

AS2

I'd think if it smeared or connected multiple bridges, it'd be really hard to clean off completely. I also would think it's not gonna be conductive enough... probably would have too much resistance.

ASII is not really conductive, it can be capacitive under high pressure but that's about it. I have made a couple of huge messes with the stuff on a couple of procs and they have never "shorted" or anything. I would just get a defogger repair kit or a silver pen.
