Re: Remove roof rails
It's easy enough to remove the rails, including removing the stainless track from the plastic housing when it's off the vehicle. (I had to do this in order to install the Rocky Roads roof rails). With the tracks removed, a powder-coater could lightly sandblast the tracks and powdercoat them black, or a body shop could paint them vehicle color, if desired. To check the effect, I used black radiator hose repair tape on the outer edge of the rails temporarily. It looks much better, and seems to be holding up reasonably well. Will see how long it lasts and then probably have it powdercoated.
