Matt black paint will stick to aluminium or stainless. just use the right primer. Eric.

If you don't want to mess about with masking tape & paint, you could get some sign vinyl & use it in the same manner as you used the "100 mph tape".

I have used a tape that is used to protect the leading edge of aircraft wings and struts. You would have to contact an aircraft maintenance workshopto see if they would sll you the quantity required.

i reckon a flat black paint is the go,... which is easily touched up when it gets a bit shabby

Can't say that I have seen a stainless roo bar before, reckon it would be a fair bit heavier than a mild steel eh?

snow,yes there is such a thing,IRONMAN SUSPENSION bring one out.check my profile the top bar is stainless and the rest is hammer tone finish.the whole bullbar without the winch and extras weighs 60kg,which probably weighs about the same as most others on the market give or take.and i spose they are there to do a job to protect your investment not just to look pretty.again thanks for the advice.

I just use flat black spray piant.
A fair bit of time goes into masking/covering off to protect from overspray, but the trick is to use lots of light coats, not just 2-3 heavy ones.
The piant will just beed up and not take, just use light & fast sweeps, give a few minutes and repeat, maybe do 4-5 times, the more times you do it, the more heavier you can apply.
