    has one ever tried to spray the bottom with some type of clearcoat, maybe silocone.

    it sure would be cool to get it chromed

    Yes, just did last month before we tucked them away for the winter. Cleaned and washed, dried, then sprayed with silicone.

    My guess, all winter, till we do the first clean up. But the deck should be rust free so that should help in keeping it clean next year.

    Lighter fluid, (charcoal), Just put it into a spray bottle and hit the bottom of the deck once a week and the grass will fall off.
    Dealer told me about this as he used it on the demo units so when they sold them they were clean. Just don't smoke while doing it.

    No silicone but we have rhino liner sprayed on them about once every two years or so

    MM4ME, does the grass stick to the sprayed on liner?
