Rola Roof Rack Rust Issues
So I am getting a lot of surface rust and paint chipping on my Rola, after having it for a year and a half. The areas where the two pieces come together are chipping away so I decided to take it off and paint it up.
Well after further inspection, it seems water has gotten inside of the rack by way of the screw holes and small holes in the welded spots. Just a heads up to the Rola users out there, make sure ALL your screws are water tight (not just where the two pieces come together), or else you will have some nasty water in there. Look for small holes where the welding may have been missed, like where the small crossbars attach.
Now to strip of all OE screws buy all new stainless, paint, silicone gel the screw holes and reassemble.
