Painting racks...

Saturday was Paint-the-Racks Day. It all starts with proper prep - a dose of Marine Clean, followed by a clean water wash and a soak in Metal Ready, and a final clean water wash and a heat-gun dry. And then, the paint. I painted the racks and boxes and stuck the boxes in while still wet (this way, scratches will "self-heal" a bit as the paint levels itself):

Here are the seat racks from below:

The upper rear rack got a pretty white coat to match the white Jeep:

And the top of the front rack now matches the bottom:

This is the last of the major painting - the rest can be done with rattle-cans.
