just got some rails in, to paint or not to paint?

traded a guy my rack for his rails and he gave me $50. leave them black or should i try to pain tthem, im just worried since they are textured they will never hold the paint even if i sand them,

Re: just got some rails in, to paint or not to paint?

on several threads about paint sticking to that surface, IIRC Rob or Scott mentioned the use of high build primer. its supposed to fill in the space after the sanding to create a smoother finish.

Re: just got some rails in, to paint or not to paint?

i vote keep them black. but thats just my opinion. keeping the original finish will help "if" you put them to use as to painting them may end in flaking off and then getting worse from there, but thats how i play things out in my head.
