i had the fingers and the tower mount coated this last winter at a local body shop. cost was $100 for two racks worth. i should have done the rack base as well, maybe this winter. it has held up good, certainly an improvement over the pitted chrome that was there.

I did mine this last winter. You will need to completly disassemble them to have them done correctly. What brand are they? I spent I think 200 to do two Titan spinners and two Titan fixed racks. Be carefull with the rubber inserts on those racks. I almost sh** a brick when I called down to Star One (formerly Titan) and they wanted 240 bucks for new rubber inserts. I am pretty happy with how they came out all said and done, and YES, they are way easier to keep clean. One of the main reasons I did mine also.

Rubber inserts run $25.00 per 12ft, so you would be looking at about $100.00 to re-rubber four racks...

I dunno if I spoke to you or not, but the gal that answers your phones quoted me in the area of $240.00 shipped. I haggled with her for several minutes, and she offered me a small discount for being a TMC memeber, but it was still over two hundered bucks. Might want to inform her.

She is not with us anylonger, she was only here for about two months... If you have any questions just ask for myself and I will get you taken care of....

I love the way those look. Did you powder coat the whole thing, swivel mechanism and all? I polished mine last year and they looked great for a few months and now look about the same as before. Unfortunately i gorilla glued in the rubber inserts so i'm not sure i'll be able to get them back out again easily... Oh we'll I'll see how easy can get them out as it may be worth it..
