What are people's favorite way to repair ring marks (or other marks) on scopes?

Personally, I tend to use a little bit of flat spray paint to freshen up my scope's finish if needed. I tape up the optics and spay from about 2 feet away using a few very light coats. I generally use Plasti Kote, but I am sure any decent quality paint would work.

What works for you folks?

I soke mine in a bucket of black tar and then bake at 350F for 35 min, just kidding.  I'm not to worried about ring marks, as long as the scope fuctions properly i'm good to go.

Mount a scope on a rifle and leave it on that rifle forever. Also use high quality rings to try to minimize ring marks. Beyond that I don't worry about them.
