    Most looked like this :/ IMG_20191214_100958.jpg IMG_20191214_100951.jpg

    With the exception of this one: IMG_20191214_155817.jpg

    Looks like I might have some serious issues on my hands.... And yes, that's oil :(

    They'd definitely look clean!

    Washed it then removed the roof rack then washed the roof again.

    I didn't know the threaded inserts stuck up as high as they do. The caps I painted aren't gonna be nearly as low-profile and clean as I was expecting. By my tolerances, this is HUGE:

    I cut the stem off a plain, non-painted cap to test. I planned to apply a thin layer of urethane to seal them and fill what I thought would be a really thin gap between the cap and roof. This gap is about the thickness of a nickel, so the sealant would really show:

    And these are definitely NOT blind holes!:

    Anyone have any suggestions for removing the footprints? I only have polishing compound and it's not abrasive enough. Should I get rubbing compound or is there something better suited?

    I'm REALLY tempted to just put the rack back on until I can regroup with a better game plan. For now, I put the screws back in with some black Permatex under the head and ran them all the way in.

    Put in an OEM USB port in the front center stack, now I have clean phone charging options. I have an idea for a wireless charger, but not sure if I want to cut up my console insert just yet

    Added a Black Friday light bar to the push bar. Also found a used Diablosport s1000 module for $50. I read that’s it’s basically a rebranded Range AFM. The module really woke up the Suburban and acceleration and ride feels much more responsive and smooth. I am noticing a decreased fuel economy, but it could just be me having more fun stepping on the gas pedal...

    Wow!

    Can you put one of your extra tree rivets in a drill and spin it while holding it up against a file to turn it down to the same diameter of the insert? Would that look any better?

    That the inserts aren’t blind is a surprising discovery to say the least.

    That's what I'm thinking, going to order a new valve cover with the updated PCV system and add a oil catch can
