They make rollers for painting behind wall mounted radiators. That is what I would use.

It's 150 gallons so it weighs over 2000 pounds lol. I can't do more than a 40% change either. I'm liking the idea of card stock. That way I could take it down with 0 problems.

That's too expensive for me. I need something cheap. Lol. I think cardboard it stock will work awesomely. I'll just tape it on and I can replace as needed.

I think the cardboard will be my best bet. I don't want a risk of screwing things up.
