So the only issue i have been having is my zippers like to corrode because im always in the saltwater. its a pain in the but sometimes to clean and open. I was thinking of maybe spray painting it? Has this ever happened to you and what was your fix??[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I had this issue but never a big problem. I have heard people using chapstick on the teeth of the zipper just to get them to move better. Maybe that can help.

If you are going to spray paint it make sure you use a wire toothbrush and remove all the corrosion from all the metal before you go over it. Otherwise it will continue to corrode underneath the paint. Maybe a quick coat of wd40? Before every outing? Lol this makes me re think having my tube trimmed out in Chrome 😅
