Hang it up via a wire or whatever, tape off any exposed yoke surfaces that go into the transmission and paint away (why not paint it like a barber pole ).

looks great.

Does anyone know why some roundy round sanctioning bodies insist the D/S be painted white?

WOOF! Yeah that makes sense; so realtree camo is out? Perhaps DIRT sanctioning should look into barber pole painting for driveshafts?
