Re: Roof racks, when did the side rails go to S.S
I don't have any info on dates, I always thought the parts were some sort of stainless going back for years.
Are you sure the 64 rails are plated steel because you are noting peeling chrome and rust build-up, or did you check with a magnet?
Sometimes lower grade stainless steels, while still being corrosion resistant, will also be magnetic.
