    I used automotive bumper trim paint........fusion paint scratches off, other paint will too.......make sure you clean it with actone or denatured alcohol

    I used krylon fusion and after a full season of riding and cover on/off i haven't had an issue but some don't like it.

    I have had good luck with Plasti-Dip from Lowes. It is a rubberized areosol that you can just peel it off if you don't like it. Have not tried it on the grab rail yet but thinking about doing it.

    I thought about doing that.....I like the automotive trim and bumper paint because the plastic absorbs it.....it has held up better than I thought......can't source the 2013 seat base that is black, the grab rail handle is easy to get

    I tried that plasti dip and i found that it rubs off quick and in large amounts when i would install or remove cover.
