sorry to hear that.
I just did a new batch with reflective tape btw and it looks a lot cooler when flying by in front of them with lights on.

My little twist on the HY barrels....
I wiped them down with laquer thinner, primed with patra then sprayed with Spaz Stix solid orange..
striped with white vinyl..........
and then a little advertisement................

I have been eating yogurt all week, just have not had time to paint. We will have plenty next session!

Very creative idea, I've got my yogurt, now it's time to go buy paint & tape so I can have a nice set of these. I was thinking maybe fishing weights in the bottom, since I don't have a large supply of surplus hardware available for filler?

You could fill them up with somthing solid like cement filler to keep them in place for the most part lol

I was thinking of using rocks & plaster. I'll decide after I finish painting & adding reflective tape.

This is awesome! I'm glad the tutorial inspired you.
To weigh them I thought of putting old 1" steel nuts from work and pour plaster over it.
Also concrete might be an option. I have not done any test, but what got me worried was the heat generated from the filling, I was wondering if it could actually deform or melt the plastic. Concreter wouldn't do that though.
I guess we need to try XD

Excellent job on your barrels though, I like them. Let me know how the spazstix paint holds up.
