Recently in a post I pondered whether As Seen on T.V. product Flex Seal, or a cousin, Plasti dip, could be used to assist in Bike Hacks. Shortly thereafter reader Sean contacted us with a cool hack that does indeed incorporate Plasti dip. All text and photos below are credited to Sean.

It was suggested I submit a photos and comments of my DIY panniers. Rear from old backpacks and front ones made from scratch. I coated them in Plasti Dip. They are super tough and look very nice.
I am planning on doing a solo loaded tour from the East coast to West coast along the 76 route, hopefully in the spring of 2012. I would like to raise some money while I am at it; I have a charitable cause I would like to fund but I have no idea how to go about that process. My co-volunteers at Charlottesville Community Bikes suggested I could make money for whatever cause I choose.
