    Ladies and Germs,

    I love my Pro Carry II for CC, but the finish is prone to rust. Any suggestions for a durable finish? I've been leaning towards hard chrome, but I'm open to ideas. I don't really care what it looks like, as long as it isn't gold-plated tiger stripe.

    Keep in mind that the frame is aluminum (I know some finishes don't work well with it)

    Dave Severns does a hard-hat treatment in all black...supposed to be tough as nails and looks good too.
