No LOL. I taped everything off, and also stuffed newspaper and cotton balls in all open areas. Cheap and it works well.

That is a sweet paint job. Especially if it is your first.

LOL!!!! We keep old jars like that and use them to store screws and what not. That was just laying around our shop.

Glad you all like it! I used rust-oleum camo paint. Wal-mart has a camo pack with six cans of paint. Had it on sale so why not?

Thanks for the posotive feedback!

Did you use the YouTube painters tape and wax paper stencil trick? I tried that on my airsoft AK, and getting the tape off the wax paper was such a pain in the you-know-what that I never even finished it
