Pop top, Rapter coating

Hey SMB family!

Anyone have the SMB West do a RAPTOR recoat on the Pop top? I was going to go to local LineX but was advised by fellow SMB that LineX is heavy in weight and that the top would be more difficult for the manual lift.
Also, LineX Gilroy quoted $1,300.00 plus $300.0 to match Baja Tan.

SMB west said they did not remove bolts, rack rails or the rubber mount? But charge $1,000.00???????

My question and hope is I could get a really good job from them replacing the bolts with new and removing racks and replaceing the rubber mount?

Any coaching is very much appreciated!

Getting our van ready to sell this spring, needs to be puuuurrrrfect for the new adventurer!

Best, Kennan & Karen Ward

Lots of info here:

I will say you might consider the PH bolt set one of the members is selling here rather than use the standard hardware SMB uses.

I had this done by SMB West and couldn't be happier. Improved the looks by 1000 percent. Had them install solar at the same time. Job took four days, and I had to schedule with Peter months in advance. Well worth it.
