Aftermarket Roof Rails (or painting OEM ones black)

4318 19
New EX-L Gen V owner (pearl white color). I'm thinking about adding roof rails but I want them to be black. There is an aftermarket option of uncertain quality. Or, I could paint / plastidip the OEM ones, sacrilege as that might be. I'm thinking black will look better in particular with a white CRV. Thoughts / experiences?

Won’t plastidip be subject to coming off if you actually load cargo on the roof?
Possibly. But so will rattle-can applied paint, and it's easier to touch up a spot with some plastidip than either removing the rail again to repaint it, or correctly mask off the section to be painted.
