Small Pickup AeroShell or a Bunch of Coroplast - Gone

---THIS IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE---

Thanks to the inspiration I got from this site (lurking for over a year)...
I made an aeroshell for my 1992 Toyota Pickup.
Aluminum Angle, 2 wood Ribs, 2 sheets of Coroplast, and 2 rolls of black duct tape.

My mpg increased by exactly 3, but I only had it on for 2 tanks before I needed to haul my bike again. I have to use my truck as a truck too often to justify having this. I did get pulled over at the Aurora Mall (because I pulled into the parking lot to answer my phone - Dam my concern for safety!!) and he was mostly curious about the aeroshell.

If you live in the Denver area and want it, please come pick it up.
If you live in the Denver area and want some coroplast, please come pick it up and disassemble it somewhere other than my garage.

You WILL need at least 2 tonneau/campershell clamps that can be found at any store that sells tonneaus.
I will also REQUIRE that you have 2 blind spot mirrors that you can get from any autoparts store. The only negative to the shell is it takes a blind-spot-free vehicle and turns it into a uhaul.

PM me with your phone number and I will call you back as soon as I can.
This thread will disappear when it is gone, or until I get sick of looking at it and I throw it into the compactor.

Thank you,
Joe

Wish you were closer!

Coroplast is a terrible thing to waste.

Should try freecycle or maybe craig's list; better than scrapping it.

Ok, I guess I'm not that good of an engineer - that was it!

I'd like to say it went to a better place,
but it's not in my garage anymore,
and that's all that really matters.
