    Default Painting the inside of grooves

    I have the grooves (about 3/4”wide ) around my cockpit lockers that the hatch closes over for drain channels. They vary about 2” to 4” deep. Does anyone have a technique for painting them, I don’t have a spray gun.
    thanks

    I would probably use the flat side of a foam brush for the vertical bits.
    Spray won't get down in there.

    Can you get one of those ultra-thin foam rollers, used for repainting cabinet doors, and use it in a vertical orientation (?)

    ended up using your idea Ron, worked pretty well except back of foam rubbed off first side so I went on a round trip doing all first sides then back again after paint had setup ( not long with what I’m using in pretty warm weather) to do second sides. I cut end of brush off square to end up with an edge that would get the paint on right down into bottom of trench. Finished bottom of trench with a small brush.
