    New to the forums and just purchased a 02 sierra a few days ago and am cleaning it up and working on it to pass the safety. The paint on my tow hooks is gone and starting to rust, was just curious if I would be better off using black automotive paint or plastidip to cover these? I have never used plastidip, however I do live in canada and need something that can handle the variety of weather, which would work better?

    If your gonna use them regularly Id probably go with automotive paint, youll have to sand and repaint almost every time you use them either way as the straps or chains will take the coating off every time.

    I have mine painted with black tractor paint, and it hasn't come off of my hooks. I have used them 3 times, to pull cars out of the ditch.
