I am still not sure whether or not I should do my roof racks, I took them off for obvious reasons. If I do them I feel the paint may rub off when I adjust them...gimme some insight cuz right now they're faded and oxidized!

Much Love

It works, but you do have to top coat anything the sun might see!! It is not UV stable.
According to the instructions, it is UV stable now. I planned on top coating it anyhow though. I'm going to do a thin strip of bed liner across the bottom of my hatch to cover up the little bit of paint I used a couple years ago to cover up the rust. Obviously that didn't work...lol. The hood will probably get a similar treatment, but I won't come have it come out to the outside surface of the hood. Weather pending, I might get to it today.

Knock on wood, my fenders, rockers, and doors are all cancer free. Just the hood and tail gate are affected. Luckily, if it gets bad enough, they're easily replaceable and black is an easy color to match.

They sell these kits at DipYourCar.com and they come with pretty much everything you need: Earlex 3500 Sprayer, Tape and Drape (although I didn't mask anything except my radiator), a super absorbent shamwow thing which is supposed to make drying your car easier since the microfiber ones will just grab the dip (somewhat of a bedliner texture), paint mixer and some sweet window stickers that add 15 HP each.

So the small car kit is plenty (3 gallons) or was it cutting it close? I only ask cause I almost bought the 5 gallon SUV kit.
