    NEW Toyo TIRES Bed Cage to hold 120 LBS of sand and fishing rod holder, window air deflectors, Bug Deflector, & finally Avid Light Bar and step rails....
    I primed and painted the Avid Light Bar and step rails.
    I used Rustoleum primer and the gloss black spray paint. They look good, but they have a few rough spots and some minor paint drip.

    How do I smooth them and protect them now? Any suggestions are welcome!

    The rough spots are either "dry" paint (not enough paint on the area), or dirt. The drips are obviously too much paint. For both, just get some 500-600 grit sand paper, sand 'em smooth, and re-apply the paint a little more carefully for a nicer finish.

    Hope that helps!

    I would have powder coated them, far more durable.
