Individual coloration

Hi guys,

This is probably a really simple question, but I'm not that advanced!

I want the mesh to be coloured differently around the cutouts - I managed it in a previous model by using a Multi-Sub object material, but it was easier to split up that geometry (below) - harder with the geometry I have.
