Yeah, no problem! I'm pretty sure I'll be going out, as long as I get all my school work done before-hand
I really need to clean the rust off of my sliders and repaint, but I'll wait to do that until after hollister, expecting more slider hits. Other than that I think my truck's pretty well set.

I'm diggin' the wilson 1000 mag mount on the cab roof. I usually hear much more than other people I wheel with. I'm not sure if there's a better alternative to the 510, I think there are other radios that are the same dimensions but that have more options if you're into that. The 510 is pretty basic and sometimes I wish I could have more options. I'd have to check the dimensions but I think I've seen people use the uniden pro520xl in that same ash-tray spot, and it has some more options.

Edit: Just checked the dimensions of the 520xl vs 510xl, same size.
User's manuals:

Went to Hollister Hills SVRA on Sunday...had a lot of fun driving around on the trails going up to the top lookout area. Coming down we accidentally got on a road that had a badly eroded steep hill. I made the turn to start going down but tried to avoid a rut by hugging a tree...and I hugged it too closely. The camper shell hit the trunk of the tree and broke one of the rack supports and bent in the rain catch above the sliding panel window, causing it to deform away from the shell and opening a bit of a hole After looking closer the inside frame for the window was bent up, you can kinda see it in the last picture. That sheered two of the bolts there...
I'm trying to find a picture of the place it happened, but no one was taking pictures there and I can't find it online. I'll search a little more, though.
Attached are the damage photos.

Since it's supposed to rain here for the next few days I did a quick silicon seal where that rain catch pulled away from the shell to reduce the amount of water leaked into the cab. After today's rain it looks like it worked pretty well, but there's still a new leak over there and I don't know where it's coming from...

I've also tried to find aluminum channeling to replace that upright, but couldn't find any in Davis. I might check Home Depot in Woodland, but even if I do find straight aluminum channeling I need a bend in it to match the angles of the original pieces. I don't think I'll be able to bend the channel because of the U-shape. If anyone has any other ideas, I'm open to them. I'm still searching for oem replacements

Fortune cookie tonight: "Something on four wheels will soon be a fun investment for you!"
Hmmm...I'll probably be investing in plane tickets sooner, but we'll see what the future holds in store

After doing some research, I can't even find anyone with the same camper shell as me online and no one has just a replacement upright for my lumber rack. Looks like I need some aluminum!
The dimensions:
6061 aluminum
1.25" base width (measurement A in the figures below)
0.5" leg length (measurement B)
Roughly 0.135" thickness (measurement C)
22.5" piece length
roughly 5* bend outward towards the open part of the U-shape of the channel at approximately 19.5" from the bottom.
Three 1/4" diameter holes at 1", 13.75", and 20.25" from the bottom
Need 4 pieces

After some research online the only 6061 aluminum channeling is 3" base width or greater and the channeling that's less than 1.25" is 6063 aluminum.
Does anyone know where I can get something that matches my pieces?
I'm able to drill the holes and cut to length if I get just one long 8' piece but I'm not sure how well I'll be able to make the bends.

For reference:
6061 aluminum channel: Mine looks more like the American Standard type


6063 aluminum channel:

Picked up some similar aluminum channel at Cardo in Sac yesterday. Super nice guy. Took one look at the pieces and said that I'd only be able to get them from the manufacturer because they're specially made. So I went out and tried to look up any gemtop person on my phone but couldn't find anyone local so I ended up calling someone in Oregon who transferred me to someone in Texas who said that they'd call me back...well the whole 8 foot length of "similar but not quite the same" channel was only $14 so I went ahead and bought it. He was nice enough to cut the piece in half so it fit in the bed of my truck and he took off tax for me, too, so it was $14 even. Really great experience, I highly recommend them!

Sooo now I need to cut and bend four pieces of aluminum channeling...anyone wanna help for beer or moneys? I think bending it involves cutting a slot, bending it to the right degree, then welding it back in place.

Oops, missed this until now!
Haha, thanks! That's definitely the plan. Even was offered "a looot of money" in the middle of stop-and-go traffic in central California. The guy understood when I said, "too much sentimental value"

In other news, just finished removing my account with photobucket and transferred all my photos over to flickr so now I've gotta go back through here and replace all of them with links to flickr. A bit of a pain, but I was getting popups on photobucket and that made me want to have nothing to do with the site.
