Links don't work. You need to save the pics to your computer, then host them elsewhere and post them here, or provide a link to the thread they are posted in.

I'm not shure pvc will work. I mean all you will do is slide around on it. You would need small diameter concrete pipe.

It MIGHT work but you can usually find old drainage pipe laying around.

Maybe scar it with an electric sander or dremel tool? Maybe some cheap truck bed liner paint on stuff?

Latex paint and some sand will give you the same texture.

Nothing a little spray adheasive and some sand couldn't fix then you could leave some slick spots on it to make it a little more challenging.
