I'd love to make up a bed cap for my dad's Sierra 1500.


ERTW, that's interesting. I've been drooling to see CFD on the streamline template and other gold standards.

Phil can correct me but it's supposed to be a body of revolution. From top view the nose should be rounded and sides taper. Think missile or torpedo.

Rock on!
