Just got started painting and was wondering what you guys do when it comes to repainting cranks.Do you remove the original eyes and add new ones or do you cover them to paint? Thanks in advance Mike

It's just whatever looks right. On cranks with inset 3D eyes, I usually replace them with new eyes. On cranks with non-standard 3D eyes, you can often pry them out and re-glue them when finished painting, before applying the topcoat. But I also don't mind painted eyes where it looks right. It depends on how you think the eyes attract or repel bites. I'm not a fan of big flashy eyes on baits, so that tempers how I approach it. When I replace 3D eyes, it's often with eyes that have less color contrast with the bait's new color scheme.
