I just bought a used MegaWarrior and I want to repaint it.

I was just going to use some Rust-oleum Professional High Performance Enamel.

Since I'm going through all the trouble to paint it, should I use something better and what would you recommend?

Use the rustolium primer (spray can) first, then use whatever you wanted to spray on. If you dont use the primer, then i would sand it down first. make sure you let it dry AT LEAST how much the instructions say (if not more).

Just Por-15 it. It will never have any rust issues.

I just checked on the website and they sell a super started kit for only $16.50! It says it covers 12 sq ft. which should be plenty but I've heard sometimes what they say it covers isn't what it really covers. I emailed them so I should know soon.

Sounded like the starter kit does not have the top coat which you need in the sun. And a pint of that is around $30...

Yep you'll need Chassis Coat for the rack. It's a semigloss. I coated my rear bumber and tire carrier in POR-15 and Chassis Coat and that stuff is the bomb. Takes a few days to cure all the way through but well worth the extra effort. My bumper survived the tool test after dropping a tool bags contents all over it. No scratches or chips. Just make sure you follow directions closely and apply plenty of coats to bring it up to thickness.

Anyone know the difference between the Blackcote and the Chassiscoat Black?
I checked the website but they have the exact same description.
I think if a pint will do it, it's worth it.

Used megawarrior - $100
POR-15 starter kit - $16.50
UV protective topcoat - $30.00

All in all - it will propable cost me a little over $160 to have a pretty much brand new roof rack.

Even better than brand new because this one will never rust! :cheers:

You owe me a beer man. ;) Por-15 is something that I learned about back when I was working on my old 66 before I got turned on to the whole X scene and wheelin. That stuff is the bomb. You can't go wrong with it. :cheers:

Black Kote is super glossy. Chassis coat is semi gloss.
