good to know. i'm not really feeling spending a ton of money on this... have school to pay for and my future motorcycle

i did a bit of work today. was a little shocked to see how orange the new can of GS is... it's really bad lol, hope the spray paint covers it all.

peeled off the tape, it isn't really dark or completely covered, but it will suffice. i hope never to see it anyway.

rough foaming of the piece that will become a stream from the pools down to the main water area.

the actual pools. yes, those are 10 cent food containers from the dollar store painted black. once they get foamed in an filled with water and sand, i think they'd look pretty good.

and some wood foamed into place in front of the place where the pools will be placed.
