And now I wonder how they would've looked without the 'rust'-treatment...
(and how much it will cost to buy 4 trashcans ofcourse... )
Well my trash can lids were $5.00 a piece. I thought about leaving them "old galvinized look" but I painted them to match the bike[/quote]
Ah, 5 bucks a piece is very do-able.
...but, overhere in Holland these sort of trashcans are considered either vintage, retro, or even exotic. I'll have to buy complete cans and pay 40,- Euros a piece. (that's 57,- USD a piece!!!) If I have to pay thát kind of money I'd rather save that little extra and buy the spun aluminum 'trashcan-lids' from Moon-equipment
But your idea is worth a million bucks. I just have to find something else big, domed, and round, and made of metal.
The fake patina looks great. Just wondering how a shiny one would look on a wheel.
