I cut two squares like realgeese and run a bamboo stake thru the holes. the stakes cost me $2 for 2 dz 24".

not sure if that'll be strong enough for masonite. Maybe try fiberglass dowells/stakes?

Went to lowes last night and got 1 by tomato stakes. I figure i can get 6 1 foot stakes out of each one. I will drywall screw that to the silo. I looked at the fiberglass stakes but I would have to clamp them I couldn't do the double squares like Rem did.
I hope someday someone remembers this old dog with kindness and gives me to a puppy.

Are the pointy ends of the screws sticking out or did are the stakes thick enough to keep that from happening. They look good.
When I bought all those outlaws, dude gave me the tool that he made to made holes. Pretty much just flat stock in the shape of a T, with another horizontal piece lower down for stepping on (if you can picture that). Just use that for making holes and you should ever have to worry about the stakes getting broken unless they get stepped on or something. I'd make a dozen extra stakes also just so you don't have to go back and mess with it when you eventually have to replace some.

Yeah I know what you are talking about. I used 3/4 drywall screws a tomato stake is about 1 inch they don't stick out. Except for the one I split

I am a fan of the black in a field. I would roll white instead of spray. Stops the black coming through and more of a contrast.

My club uses them that way and we have about 900 silos total just black and white. They kill.

I used Rustoleum ultra flat black and white hand paint for some of my b&w's and the contrast is great.
