Don't paint the area where the o-ring seals against the tank. Gas will dissolve the paint, and the seal will leak. I would sand the area, making sure to clean the area where the o-ring goes, then use a small brush to paint around the petcock. You won't need to mask anything, unless you have a really large area to paint, just cut in around the petcock with the brush. I noticed that the bottom of my tank is not completely painted, looks like they just hit it with overspray. No rust here in AZ. Jerry.
