Default Painting drives

Hey guys I need to repaint a couple of spare drives I have laying around.How does any one paint these? As a complete unit? Separate lower and upper and pint separately? And then hoe do you prop them up so you could paint all the way around in one shot? It seems like a lot of people paint them year after year so they must be some great ideas out there on how to do this easily and effectively?

Thanks Nordic95

Thanks for the offer to paint,but the painting I can do my self.My question was how to hold and or support while painting.I like the fixture you made Roger,Is there some thing on the market like that to make life easier for a DIYer??

I made that one myself. It's one that I use for painting just about anything that't hard to hold onto. I don't know if there is anything on the market or not. I'm sure that you could find something that will suit you need though.
