Paint Rollbar

Recommended Posts

I would like to change the color of my rollbar from black to artic silver. I had hoped that it would easily unbolt, however, after polking around for a while last night I've determined that it may not be so easy to remove for paint. Has anyone done this?

It can be unbolted and removed. A local guy painted it while it was still bolted in place. He removed the padding and everything else he could get to. Then masked off the car and used a spray can of silver paint. He painted just the part of the rollbar you can see.

Well...I did remove the rollbar. It has been painted and reinstalled. It wasn't difficult, but did take some time. What I didn't realize when I started the project was that the convertible top frame is bolted to the rollbar. I was a little concerned that the operation of the top would be out of synch when reinstalled, but everything is working. The artic silver rollbar looks great with the guards red exterior and I think it was worth the effort.

The top and rollbar are assembled as a unit. http://www.cartopsystems.com/english/top_s...ops/boxster.htm Car Top Systems makes the top. I assume the rollbar as well because I have seen a CTS sticker on the rollbar. Porsche owns CTS.

For the next brave guy here are instructions. http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/show...2228#post712228
