    WOW, Kevin, You have made the big time. DIYer of the Month,
    So when is Popular Science coming by to do the interview? LOL
    I didnt do the math on which method would be more cost effective, but I am guessing the rattle can is cheaper.

    BTW Kevin if you need a hand filling Spinners $400 order I can swing by and help out.

    What i wonder is the dye reef safe? I would think some would be eroded off by the salt water. Even tho the dye bonds molecularly.
