I've left mine un-painted! That zinc plate seems to last quite a while, Especially if kept off salted roads.

Paint does not bond well to zinc. Certain primers may help. The zinc does a pretty good job, so I wouldn't worry!

The paint stays on if you use the right stuff. I never find the zinc lasts all that well, I just have mine done for stone chipping protection.

I will use a mixture of chalk lines, string, tape measure and laser gauge - it will be a challenge and fun, I hope.
