    Cool way to paint top of Tent/Tarp Stakes

    Here is a cool way to add a very durable bright color to the top of you Shepard hooks or tent stakes most people have never seen before. Thought you guys would like to see. Its something I use to use back in my tournament fishing days when I made custom lures.

    That's pretty sweet and looks easy enough to do, assuming a butane torch/lighter works as well as the heat gun did.

    Thanks for sharing. Great solution. Do they sell a coating that is reflective?

    Wow, expansion of idea, tarp flyz in neon.... make it easier to keep track of!
