    Hey everyone, just wondering how do you go about painting ratcheting joints? They do take alot of abuse during movement, so what kind of paint stands up well in these areas? Or do you paint them at all?
    Thanks

    no point in painting those. I dye them for my projects, but there's no good way to paint them.

    You can paint them, but just make sure you avoid the moving parts like the teeth.

    I just assumed that's the parts he meant. You can see a tab on those parts, even though the majority of them are inside.

    thanks guys, yeah Id figure not painting them might bt the best bet, but with a joint that has totally odd colours its hard to figure out what to do.
