    As OCD as most people here are, I decided to paint day go orange the back two legs of my bird. Bad eyesight and all. Anyway, papered it off, did a good job. of spraying....but not good enough. Decided to repaint..SO, I unscrew the first leg and the damm tiny screw falls into the middle hole that a rubber grommet fits into...NOOOOO...after 15 minutes of turning and twisting the bird..it falls out!! My other was option was to take the shell off, as I could hear it rolling around and thought it might fall into the motor. Word of advice...be very, very carful unscrewing anything you don't have to and don't be so OCD (ME)....

    I painted mine the same color but the name of the paint is called Neon Fluorescent Orange. The pic looks a lot different then when in person.

    Thank you. Yes I did remove the part prior to paint.
