What do you mean, "some protection?"

Has anyone painted the OEM crossbars black?
Anyone have any recommendations on what to use to paint them? Something that wont fade or chip easily would be nice!

Some random black rattle can i had left over. Its already rubbing off though where i put the clamps on... I was thinking about the Dupli-color rubberized spray paint that i have used on my jeep before but think it may go on too thick.

I'd try plastidip first.....I used it on my front grille and various other stuff and it hold up to abuse. It's all of $5 a can and with some sand paper for proper prep you're good to go. The best part is if you don't like it you can literally peel it off, it's super easy to undo.

I did them by myself. It was my first time ever wrapping anything and it was a good learning experience. I bought the 3M 1080 Matte Black vinyl wrap on ebay for like $30 (I bought a large quantity since i knew I would wanna wrap other stuff).

Quick question... anyone know specs on a good roofrack for my 99 rs? Looks like the way the sils are designed that I'll need some roof mounts. Any info greatly appreciated.

Found this one that looks decent but I think it attaches to the sils and don't know how restrictive that might be with the rs.
