DIY Highway Barrels
was thinking of using play sand as weight and I've got tops cut out of plastic that I'll glue on once I've put the sand in.
these will look great with my construction pylons I made last year.

maybe use water?
I thought about water, but then I'd want to find a way to make them explode like their movie counterpartsI imagine that it would also make carrying them around more difficult.
Fill them with beer.* You'll get really good at drifting real quick. ;) The beer you don't spill, you get to drink as a reward.

That's also a great idea, lol. It could make for a fun game of horse with the right people & beer.

Very cool. What did you use for the tops?

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

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................
Thank you for this DIY... its awesome......

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

They held up fairly well...
One should scuff them first, but over all not bad
Only problem, they tip over too easy, even filled them with plaster...
Got tired of walking over to stand them up sooo in the trash they went... =o
i made a ton of these if we are drifting on carpet i put some cheap velcro on them if we are playing outside i just put some double sided tap on them again the cheap stuff so it peels off after we are done. also if you cut the bottoms out you can trim them to make the tops of the barrels. I also found that using plumbers thread tape works really well as striping tape, just put a little scotch tape on both ends and it will disappear
