Chevy Colorado Ragtop Install - Let The Sunshine In
Ragtop Install On A Chevy Colorado
Scott Harris was on us like white on rice about this Chevrolet Colorado project that he was planning on building for the 2007 SEMA Show. We're always in the market for a good story about a cool truck, so we got the opportunity to shoot a couple aspects of the build for this truck. Last month, we showed you the cool interior transformation this Colorado underwent, thanks to Classic Soft Trim.
In Truckin' Vol. 34, No. 4, we exhibited a full seat cover install, headliner makeover, and how the pros wrap pillars. This month's story is the installation of an Inalfa canvas sunroof, which was installed by the fellows at the Classic Soft Trim (CST) installation center in Commerce, California. CST is one of the nation's largest suppliers of sunroofs and they probably make one for your truck, too. Read on for how it all went down.
The folks at Classic Soft Trim knew what they were doing when they installed this product, and it went without a hitch for the most part. The silicone, which was used as an extra water barrier between the edge of the sunroof and the roof, should work fine. However, its application demands extra care to ensure that it looks smooth. The silicone dries quickly and, therefore, took a few tries before it was free of visually distracting roughness. All in all, this sunroof looks and works pretty well.
