Well, first off...Rain was NOT the reason I put this thing together...it was the reduction of drag(^mpg). If it's water resistance that you need, then you can easily apply a good weatherstrip in between the planks, but that's not what is really important to me.Titan_TX said:Actually has no one thought of one major problem? Rain! A major thing with the cover is no water gets into the bed. Well, the way you designed it allows water to go in between the wood panels you put on. Without some type of good rubber seal between them, its going to leak. Another bad thing about wood. The water is going to sit on top of the wood, which in turn will cause it to sag over time. Even a protectant won't help that.
maybe 1-2 mpg increase, I can't really say as I did it VERY quickly after purchaseSimplyTitan said:Looks real good...What was the increase in MPG?
Walmart or Home Depot has the resin. And, Yes, has held up well. Only problem is some of the paint peeling up because of not good adhesion with the resin...I didn't rough it up any before I painted it.SimplyTitan said:Where would I find the fiberglass resin? Held up well so far?
Yes. I've got the SE w/ the Utili-Trac system.SimplyTitan said:One last question..I guess your truck came with that sliding rail to put the boards in?
