Hi will how u doing here a great tip i didnt have black paint or a few bucks but 5 things i got was a scraper and black sillicone and sunflower oil and a very small paint brush so mi brother said i am going to help u get small stones as i ride on the road the guys busy to tar the road and there was grey stones small one i grab a 20liter room dustbin put the stones inside and went back home. So first i didnt have a sift to sift the sand and dust out I went to take a 6x9 speaker grill  mi brother mix the sillicone and small stones with a scraper and paint the hopper with the oil all the places and put stones into the hopper so that it can set well its in and now its being set it looks like a square rubber and on top it looks like coal.
