Painted rail!
I'm too lazy to paint the rail after the rack is attached. But was hard working enough to sand the rail to white metal with a hang grinder before I paint.

I degreased my metal with acetone, painted everything with Rustoleum paints, and attached my racks with the tape referenced in post 63 of this thread. No bolts on ends, just tape.

No paint on the bottom of the rails, but cleaned with acetone before mounting the X and Y racks with tape. I did use screws on Z.

Ok. Painted sounds like it works. Still I might mask off the tape area before I paint if I don't get impatient.
Thanks for the input all.

I attached to prepped clean metal with the tape. No problems with unpainted.

Update: 1200+ hours on tape. No problems yet. Truthfully, I've done nothing but routine maintenance, and not very diligently. A robust design.

I have one side with VHB and the other with standard double sided foam tape. I did this as a test to see which one held better. Both are still holding fine. The key is prepping the metal so there are not any oils or debris that will interfere with the adhesive.
