I use 1/4" masking tape...use just enough to make two or three wraps around the eye...then base, paint and clear. After it dries run a dull pocket knife around the tape edge and pull. The taping takes a little time but it's worth it. I clearcoat with Devcon and have done this with screw eyes, stainless and brass hangers without any problems.

Ditto on the dremmel with the wire brush. Works great, easy to control, nice clean lines when finished.

Take the plugs fishing, the fish will remove the paint/clear from the hook hangers pretty quick :twisted:

I'm new to building, but I don't put the hook hangers on until after painting just before clear coating and I don't mind getting clear on the hangers just seals the holes better.

I've seen a little battery operated sodering gun used for fixing plastic worms that supposed too clean out eye screws too.I personally use a old set of split ring pliers..The notch fits well into the eye screws..give a squeeze,and rotate back and forth a couple times,and its clean..Nathan
