You may want to stick a swab or bunches of paper towels under the paper to hold it tight against the porting.

I'd use a dowel wrapped in foam or paper towels to make a really tight fit, pehaps even plug the holes with toothpicks or something similar. When you're finished, you should thoroughly inspect the inside and clean it several times- the last thing you want is paint to get in the holes or barrel ('course paint in the holes/barrel might turn it into a cheap apex/flatline... NAAAHHHHH !!!! :happy: ) What paint are you using- regular spray enamel or duracoat?

That should work pretty well- won't be as durable as Duracoat, but it does hold up pretty well, especially w. clearcoat on top for xtra protection. Just make sure you take the precautions we mentioned above to keep the barrel squeaky clean. Post us a pic when you're done- love to see how it looks.
