    Same here.

    EDIT: to answer the OP's question it was barlow's (sp?) build. All he did was drill out and put in stail less steal rivits and put caps over the rivits to prevent scratching the windoes. i have had no prblem with that. And he also put some clamps at the front of the bed to hold down the front flap better. I to did this, but I used some cheap, small C-clamps I got from home depot. I used 2 of them (1 on each side) and have had no problems so far.
