Newbie needs advice:
Picture is a mock-up of a sissy bar/rack combo I'm adding. The sissy bar in the picture is a temporary stand-in until my custom bar is ready. I'm keeping the saddlebag supports and thinking of keeping the double luggage racks but when I receive my sissy bar I'm gonna either powder coat or paint it black. I'm not liking the amount of chrome on the rear end so I wanna black out some chrome hardware.
What kinda prep work do I need to do before I paint & is there any particular type of paint should I be using. I was perusing the local hardware store and saw some rust-resistant paint among various other types. I'm in the Pacific Northwest where it rains about 300 days a year so I was wondering if that rust resistant paint should be the way to go.
Any advice would be great.
