this is a lovely good looking rack but it really isn\'t stainless steel; it is cheap chromed steel. in other words it looks great for 6 months and then rusts horribly. MX5 Parts, even if it is unintentional, you are guilty of mis-selling a low cost chrome rack as a high quality stainless one. but hey, I am on my 2nd one in 18 months and am about to send it off for rechroming simply because it looks good.
Editors Note: We have been producing these luggage racks for quite some time now and we can assure you that they are made from 100% 304 Stainless steel, then chromed over the top. We have in the past had them independently tested to ensure that they are stainless. The reason they are chromed is because of the complexity of the item, it is extremely difficult to highly polish the metal itself. If you have had issues with rusting (please note, the problem we suspect you are getting is pitting in the chrome plating) then please contact a member of the sales team as these carry a 5 year warranty and we would always be happy to replace it. It should also be noted that like any highly polished surface, the item should be cleaned on a regular basis to ensure it stays in good condition.
