I have an old crankbait and its stripped of paint, it has a tiny bit of paint on it in certain places but i would like to repaint it, what would be the easiest/cheapest way to do this? Thank you.

Jim, the cheapest/best way to repaint it would be to use rattle cans (exterior spray paint) and then coat the bait with spray-on exterior urethane clearcoat to give the paint some protection. This will not be as permanent as the original finish but should work for awhile. Lightly sand the bait with 400 grit sand paper and wash it in soap and water before you begin painting. If you need to paint the eyes again, spray some paint onto tin foil, dip in a Q-tip and press it on the bait. Come back with a water based black marker pen and paint in the irises. Buy the paint and clearcoat from the same manufacturer so it will be compatible, otherwise you can get bubbling and other problems.
