lotsa holes to mask

I'll be spraying bed liner in the tub of my bronco, i have lots of bolt and screw hooks that need to be plugged... I experimented with making tape but could not get a nice "cone"shape. any tips on this?

Not sure what bolt & screw hooks are. How about using foam type ear plugs for the holes?

I wonder if that spray in foam such as "Great Stuff" would work? I have the same issues on my old ride.

corks, you can get them all sizes at lowes or you can make your own out of wood or plastic dowels and sharpen them in an old style pencil sharpener.

Great ideas guys, i actually used a lot of them. I also used some mechanical oil pressure gauge line for the smallest screw holes (sill plates, weatherstripping, speakers ect
