I have been thinking about what to do with the top rack rails. The paint has started peeling off. Because the rails are black and the mounts are a greyish color I have been leary of painting just the rails. This might be an alternative.

Would probably work very well...im going to the trim around the rear side windows with it.

Reading a bit about the plasti-dip, never seen it seems cool. Seems to peel right off if not wanted/liked? But also the VW guys paint the chromw bumpers with it and seems to hold up. Lets get a 3 month up-date.

Is it still holding up? I was thinking about doing this to my rims.
