    RXP-X Scoop Grate paint pealing

    Guys,

    I have an RXP-X with 10hrs on. I have noticed that the black paint has started to come off the scoop grate in large sections. Not happy about this as paint should be better bonded to the metal plus it exposes the grate to salt corrosion.

    Have any of you RXP X owners had this happen, check your grate.

    Mine is the same as well as the other RXP-X's I have worked on. There is A LOT of force on that grate.
