Sorry for some reason I lost the text in previous post.

I bought this set up:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kN7RrqKEpA for my CX-5 Touring but hate the chrome color of the OEM rails. I'm thinking to paint them black to match rest of the car. Anyone done it yet? Please advice about plastic paint used and technique.

Gracias!

i think these forums are acting up. my post and re-edit turned out blank. the forums were down yesterday as well.

original post:
have you considered getting price quotes from autobody shops and other custom paint services? if it was me that would be the easiest and probably the best way to go.

update:
just read announcement. they're working on the blank post issue:

I've painted mine black using Plasti-dip. it cost about 5 dollars. You can see pictures of my Sky Blue CX-5 on the "show us pics of your ride" thread (I think that's what it's called). Mine is on page 22. The black roof rails look waaay better.
