Re: ROLA rack rusting!!!

Damn, the Rola rack was on my list of accessories to buy until I read this thread. Now I may opt for the Yakima...

Re: ROLA rack rusting!!!

It's not a bad roof rack at all and is a lot more heavy duty than the Yakima, but I live up in WI where the winters are bad so I wanted to make sure to seal it up to keep it rusting from the inside out. Plus, I use my rack fairly often so it gets beat up. I would stick with getting the ROLA!!!!

To fix this problem I took the rack apart and black siliconed all the joints (including the holes for the screws to hold the two pieces together and the airdam on the front). It looks brand new now and looks great. Will post pictures later

Re: ROLA rack rusting!!!

Mine is doing the same, and when it rains the rust will run down my roof to my back glass. Which is not a good look for a silver WK. I just used clear silicone caulk around the seams and so far so good. lol

Re: ROLA rack rusting!!!

"lo lo", my "ROLA" symbol is also quickly fading, a heavy duty replacement decal would be pretty cool since the "ROLA" logo is a good look i think! Let me know how it turns out if you get one made.

Here is a pic of the new ROLA logo, black siliconed joints, and newly painted metallic silver rails to match the rims.

Re: ROLA rack rusting!!!

Nice! Def looks a heck of alot better with a healthy "ROLA" logo, instead of the faded one like i have. Where did you get the new logo?

Re: ROLA rack rusting!!!

I got the logo made at a local vinyl decal shop where I live. They already have the pattern in the computer. If you would like one, let me know and I can order one and let your know the price.

Re: ROLA rack rusting!!!

It's like your typical vinyl that you see on vechicles or people with thier own businesses. Nother real fancy, but built for the outdoors.

Re: ROLA rack rusting!!!

Get yourself some Plasti-Dip spray and "paint" it with that. It looks good and is proving to be very durable...

Check out the thread below...it's from a G37 forum, but those guys are using the stuff for wheels, roofs, emblems, etc...
The 4Runner guys use it for wheels, bull bars, racks, etc....
