With a pin vise drill a hole in the fitting. Start out with a small drill, such as a # 76 drill and then work your way up.
If you don't the hole will not be centered well and the plastic will crack.
Cut a piece off the rod with a hobby knife. If you wish you can use a hobby saw.
Now paint the fitting, either blue or red depending on the application.
You will need:
Tamiya Clear Red and Blue
Plastruct Hex Rod - for .025" and .035" Braided Line use .060" Hex Rod
Place the fitting on a rounded toothpick and paint it with some silver paint.
