    Anyone with the super top is familiar with how at the front of the bed a strip of Velcro holds the seal on the forward flap... well mine has failed. I assume its the oppressive Texas heat combined with the black truck and black top and black bed liner but the glue on the Velcro just doesn't glue anymore... I know I'm trying to put this glue on the bed liner which is bound to not be perfect.

    Thought I would see if anyone had any improvements on the glue used or even a different sealing system all together...

    Thanks

    Not sure how it is on the 1st gens but on mine I just took a 1/8" x 1 1/2" x 48" piece of flat stock steel, painted it black, and got 4 2" c-clamps from H.F. Then just put the steel on top of where the velcro goes and clamp it down with the c-clamps. My velcro has not failed, but I was worried about it ever since I read a thread where someone had his ripped off cause it failed while driving.
