    Why not make it? Burnt motor oil and white paint. Mix with Mama's blender. Oh no! Then Mama will be mad and offended, and still no Black paint! Hell, I would just use black gorilla tape instead.

    It will be yours once it's in your hands. I have gallon cans, both in flat and gloss and tons of rattle can in either. I'm also fairly certain I have metal flake black too...really shiny stuff!

    Even the tape is a very dark grey. Electrical tape is the closet I found, and even that tends to turn a very oily dark brown over time. I still think it went down as part of a government conspiracy in the cargo holds of the Titanic.

    Good idea, but the durability is rather suspect.

    How about roofing tar, just us gas or vodka to cut it a bit and roll it on!
  • westmassguywestmassguy Posts: 5,715
    Or drink the Vodka, and forget about the black paint altogether.

  • mhardy6647mhardy6647 Posts: 14,696
    hmm.. roofing tar cut with high-proof vodka might make an acceptable, MacGyver'd paint in a pinch. Something like gasoline would probably be a better thinner, though.

    Posting to be part of history.

    My first visit to this thread. Couldn't sleep so I read it all. dale442 didn't know what he was stepping into.

    (http://forum.polkaudio.com/discussion/170892/im-scared/p6)

    Dale is like my city cousins when I was a kid in the 50's. My uncle would put his foot over a cow pod in pasture, and dare them to stomp his foot into it. They always lost.

    Bought me some new screws as well as some were a bit tired. Home Depot, about 3 bucks and painted them black as they didn't have black. Nor did they have Phillips head.... that did make me sad :'(

    Dale :)

    hmmm.... I don't think you can get aftermarket Phillips heads for slot head screws any more. I could be wrong about that, though.

    I'm sure it's a nice basement, Ricardo, but I can't say as I'm really interested in it ?

    Good to see you back and stirring up trouble.
