    Default roof rack rust

    ok so im retarded and i didnt follow the instructions on how to weatherproof my daves olympic rack prior to installing it cause i figured a company like olympic would make a quality rack for the money i spent on it without it rusting internaly after a few weeks!!! should i take it off and start from scratch or do you think applying some sort of herculiner or similar product on it would work on it??? the rack looks great but when it rains it pours rusty water on to my soft top and stains it. chime in and let me know what you think

    Take it off and follow the directions for weather proofing.
    If not, you're going to be dealing with rust stains and the product won't last nearly as long.
