Randy The Hack, The aerolids will be about $1800.00 for the Chevy full size trucks. I wish I had a time to give you on the availability.

Again my apology for the late responses to your posts. After my friend regains some order back to his life we will resume work.

To all thank you for your support and you guys keep doing what you are doing. We all have talents and skills to contribute to the pursuit of fuel efficiencies.

Thanks,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your partner's wife. I offer you my sympathies, and hope that the future will bring healing to all affected. Best of luck in your ventures... and trust me, I will take the time you recommend to live life and not sweat the details.

My thoughts have varied - for doing such a design as this - from doing it on the bare box, to getting a hard cap, and using that as a base for some of the build - shape tests. Any thoughts (plans) you might be able to produce - when you can get to them, would be apreciated by me - and apprently - others as well.

Chris D. - I guess I need to track down the story of your process on this - can you give me a hint? (Link)

Hi there,
I'm new to the site and looking for a way to make my 1993 F150 get better gas mileage. I really love the idea that Brett has come up with, but I don't think that they will be one to fit my truck, as it is a flareside. I might just have to wait until they come out with that 6 cyclinder diesel F-150 and then get one to fit it... I'm looking forward to hearing more about this exciting product.
Keep us posted Brett.
Thanks,
Rob

Hello. Another new person to the site. Linked through this site from an article on Treehugger.com. I live in Boulder, CO and there are two main thing's people like in Boulder and that's the environment and traveling to the mountain's, and that means a lot of pick up trucks(Toyota's) and a good majority have cap's. I think Bondos cap is one of the best truck innovation's and probably would be a big seller in the mountain states. Bondo I hope you are successful with the cap. Good luck!!!

I love the look and functionality of this cap! You mentioned in a earlier post a sort of unofficial time-line for development for different trucks. Are the new Toyota Tacomas on that list at all? I'd really love one of these!

Christopher

I don't think they are currently in production, and I haven't heard from bondo in a while, but hopefully they get going soon,
