I'm looking to see if anyone knows of any shops in Ga. Who are capable of doing a blow thru? I really wanna step into that realm and side of things.

You should be able to do all that yourself as well.

Not hard at all

THIS.


Measure...
Measure again...
Cut...
Seal with accordian boot.

Its not that hard. All you really need is a measuring tape, marker, and a sawzall to cut it.

well. The big problem is I do have a sawzall but its battery operated lol. It would get about half way thru the cut before it died out. And where can I pick up some accordian booting?

Topper shops should carry it.

Thats why you should pick some spare batteries foo!

You could also prolly rent one from Autozone or most automotive places.

Accordian boot...

I had so much trouble trying to find somewhere local to buy the accordion boot. And when I did find a place they wanted $15/ft. You can find it online for under $90 for 15 feet.

Yeah. I will have to see what the depth of the gap is going to be. I think its going to be about 2 to 3 inches. So I should be pretty good in that aspect. I'm getting excited to do this. I really need to get a real bed cap. because the one I have is the snap on tonneu cover. lol.

I used a cover like that for years.

Dont pay a shop to do it. You can do it yourself in a day.

Im also using a snap cover. You just have to make sure it is not letting any water in.
