^^^ I'll have to look there again when I'm back at my pc, but it doesn't look like they have the cap nuts for 1" thread in the black finish. And even so, the regular 1" black oxide nuts are over $12 each, and I'd want six of them plus the cap nuts. I'm just being cheap and would rather use the stuff I already have. I didn't plan on the rack turning out the way it did, otherwise I would've done like you suggested and bought black nuts to begin with. I guess I could just paint them but I didn't think it'd hold up well. Oh, and the PVC wood thing wasn't my idea, I just found it on Google. But it still turned out nice, and it's really simple to do.
