    Default my 89 suburban is finally in the paint shop...

    ...after hours and hours and hours of prep work by me and a few friends. I had a few spots left for some glaze and red putty, but I finally decided to let the pros do the final "finesse" work. As some of you may recall I am going Hot Rodz flat black. It is kind of like a satin. It is a single stage urethane.

    In the meantime I am scrambling to get few final things ordered and I was wondering if anyone knows the width of the roof on the 89 burb??? I found a nice aluminum rack I would like to get but I want to find out the width of the roof first??? Thanks guys.

    No thanks. I forgot I had the old roof rack laying in the back yard.... Got the truck back from the paint shop. Looks pretty good although they broke one of my windows...the body man said, "it was already broken". I told the manager it was not. Needless to say they ordered me a new window. Next step is to mock up some aluminum blocks to mount the new roof rack, then I need to get the roof rack, the front bumper, front grill, interior sill plates, rear tactical bumper, and a large strip (up to the body line) Line x'd or Rhino lined. Not sure which I will go with. Many say Line x is superior (harder) and lays better...wouldn't mind hearing some opinions here???? Once this is all done, I will take many pictures to post up.
