Wink Another truck aero cap idea...

Now that I have all this coroplast...I was thinking... Make an aero cap strictly just fer aerodynamics and not security. Make it with 3 layers of 4mm coroplast with the middle layer sandwiching some lexan fer viewing. Maybe even incorporating some real side glass from a used vehicle...

It would still need some sort of framing to keep it on the truck bed lip.

I guess the key would be to git the correct angles to make it effective and simple to access the bed with. I know I don't want to use a bunch of adhesive to stick the sheets together...maybe some spaced out spots instead of slathering it on the coroplast.

I guess fer a second step (if this proves successful) is to cover it with aluminum flashing to make it somewhat secure from knives or what not...

Thoughts?
