Really ? That is not bad at all. Eventually, I am thinking about a little louvered panel below my bed to hide the kickup. I will keep them in mind.

I'm sure you will post some pictures when you get them, anxious to see how they come out.

Man, Bob, that looks killer, and something not everyone would do. Rain might be a problem, but we are HOT RODDERS .we are tough !

Dan used a place in Orlando to do the louvering on the rpu tonneau cover when he owned the car, but I think they are out of business now. They actually did a great job, but we had to build a crate , ship it via truck to them, and then they put it back in the crate and returned it to us. So, your deal was really a good one, money wise.

Here is the one they did for Dan, very similar to yours.

Haha, I was just kidding about the rain coming in, but your solution sounds like a good one.

Now, maybe if you faced the louvers rearward, and drove REALLY fast....

Your to-do list must be getting pretty small.
