yea I’ve been trying to find different methods of preventing the scratches. Had the rack for about a month now and I take it off and put it back on daily to prevent the scratches and someone on these forums said they use the painters tape so I figured it was a cheap method to prevent the scratches. Been working good so far however wouldn’t mind something stronger. Do you take the 3m tape off every time you put the rack or is it a permanent option
