I must have been brushing some brush in some sections as I now have some good desert pin stripping on my black boxes. The pin stripping shows up real well with the dust on them. You may be able to make it out in some of my next shots. I have been thinking about making some sort of plastic/rubber bumpers to put on the corners of these boxes. So far they have survived us just fine but I think in a bigger/harder/faster crash they will succumb to the impact denting nicely.
