    Couple of tips for you guys...

    The weatherstripping on the underside of my bucket had fallen apart years ago. I found something at Lowe's that seems like it's made for us. It's marine/auto rubber (not foam) stripping with an adhesive back. It fits perfectly and the hood doesn't rattle now.

    Here's what I used:



    Here's an attempt at a closeup:



    One more tip. I've always changed out my bunk boards every year after seeing so many break in the middle and leave people stranded. I decided to do something about this too. I bought two 6' strips of zinc coated strap and bolted it underneath the bunks with SS screws. Might not be the prettiest thing in the world, but I figure if a bunk lets go this may save my ass:

    David, the next time you replace your bunks, you can buy plastic 2X4's. Then you will NEVER have to worry about them rotting or breaking. This is what I am going to do the next time I need to replace mine.

    Here's one more for you. Go to Academy and buy a Yoga mat for $10. Cut it to fit, use spray adhesive, and you now have a padded workbench for all your precious parts.

    Here is just one example.

    http://www.plasticlumberyard.com/

    I used to sell them to use on the top rails of dump trucks so that the loader operators couldnt break them. I dont know what kind of lumber suppliers you have in the area, so a search for plastic lumber would probably help you out.
