I would stuff it with something so that the paint wouldn't have a chance to touch the inside. something newspaper. just make sure you can get it out.

or just give your tippmann a minor re-polishing of the internals.

Would you recommend painting the A5 Flatline? I think it has a factory clear coat and I would have to take off a lot of paint.

I want to do a Pink-Silver spraypaint fade on my 98.

How would I do this with spray paint? I have the spray paint and after I mill everything off with a filer what do I do?

Fade:
After you've completely prep'd your recievers, paint them completely end to end with the lighter of the two colors.  Once your satisfied and its completely dry use the darker color, start painting one end and as you get to the middle keep pulling the spray can farther away from the recievers, so you get less and less paint on them.   That's it. 

You might want to practice on something first to get the technique down.

Does it work well with spray paint?

I'm just worried about putting the marker back together, and retaping the hoses right.

Does taping hoses have anything to do with painting a marker?

A fade job might not work too good with rattle cans, unless you could find some really fine nozzles to put on your cans to help atomize the paint coming out. Also with painting plastic parts you should prep them with a 600-800 grit wet, clean with a automotive plastic prep cleaner, or even denatured alcohol to take off any mold release agents, and then use a plastic adhesion promoter. You can find adhesion promoter in a rattler now, so look at your local auto paint dealer or online at Autobodydepot.com.
