I have a couple of Sebile swimbaits I want to repaint. I use and currently have the old DN top coat.
Well how do I top coat these lures w/ DN and not get it in the hinges and mess up the swimming
action? Any help appreciated.

I've used petroleum jelly as a release agent on hinges and eyes, clean it out after the epoxy clears. Just be very careful where you apply it, will leave nasty fisheye's in the clear coat wherever there's a trace. It can be washed off with hot soapy water when all's done.

You might try some stuff called "Liquid Frisket". I've bought some at my local Hobby Lobby. It's sort of a liquid rubber type of stuff that you can apply to areas that you want to keep clean. After application it dries to a rubbery texture that can be easily peeled off when your done. You can do an online search for it and read up on it's uses.
