I paint the grooves. If you don't paint them they will just rust right away. Why wouldn't you paint the groove?

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

I wouldn't worry too much about getting paint into the grooves, once they're on the car and running the belt friction will take care of the paint in short order. They were fully painted at the factory.

tape works great to keep paint off areas you dont want it- ever heard the term "masking"?

Ahhh, a sheer genius. It does not matter if paint gets in the grooves, but if you don't want it there..."masking" works great.
