Well I'm definitely going to stick with the factory color! I was thinking about getting my paint from Napa which I understand is rebadged Sherwin Williams. Not sure which SW it is but I used their Ultra 7000 on my last project and it is awesome stuff. Ever have experience with Napa paints?I just sprayed that color. I used Omni B/C and had to shoot 7 coats of base to get coverage because it was so transparent. At 5 coats it looked like it was covering but I added two more to be safe. Limco, by BASF covers much better but I already had Omni. They gave me an extra gallon for my trouble, so I actually shot 4 sprayable gallons of base!! I was not happy, but it turned out really nice. All the transparent layers give it so much depth. Also, in the sun it looks like a pearl, pretty interesting.
Shlt fire, that looks gnarly. Having done a roof in that area I remember how much fun that wasn't. But yeah, I wonder if the stock rack accessory would have come with backing plates and someone was like "No thanks, I'm not pulling the headliner. Sheet metal screws will do just fine."
