    Anyone ever get the stainless steel version of the BuidBuilts?

    Considering the stainless to offset the total black&gold theme I'm starting to develop and it'd be nice to not worry about rust no matter how scraped up they get.

    I vote no on the Stainless. I just don't like the look of skids any other color than black. Makes them stand out too much IMO.

    Stainless & rattlecan, cheaper than powder coating isn't it? Plus the coating will get ruined pretty quick.

    Living in New England, I like stainless accessories because they don't rust (if high quality stainless).
