Last fall my brother in law neglected to tie his rowing shell down properly. As he took off the bow came up and slapped down on the front bar of the roof rack folding it in half. I managed to glass it back together last autumn but waited for warmer weather in the spring to paint it. Good old Rustoleum paint never looked so good.
Wound up wit 6 coats of each color and lots of 400 grit sanding.. amazing what good old Rustoleum paint can look like... to much dust in the shop though and up close you can see the imperfections.
hopefully preventing any future roof rack mishaps
