When I replace mine, I'm going to have it hot dipped galvanized. Should last a while with that followed by primer / topcoat.
Also, I'm thinking of doing some reinforcing for the soft top header and maybe nutcerts for the bows and hard top bolts before galvanizing, so no new holes once it's painted.
