Question Object Paint Advice?

Hi guys,

I am currently applying flush bolts (aka torque bolts - the ones that use Allen keys), to a flat surface but I have run into a small problem. The Object Paint tool is choosing the sunken poly at the base of this flush bolt (e.g the underscore between these two hyphens -_-), instead of the open ring at the top of the flush bolt (e.g the two hyphens -_-). I have tried using offset options but its not close enough to where the surface should be. If I leave them where they are, I know the bridge tool won't work well when I delete the surface where I am placing these objects, and bridge in around the bolt to give it a clean flush surface. I could boolean all of these bolt heads but I'm positive there's gotta be another way.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Not sure if i understand you correctly.
You can also adjust the pivot of your object (bolt) instead of using the offset-option.

Maybe post a screenshot about what you are trying to achieve.
