    I had forgotten about the birds using it for a roost and crapping on the hood. Thanks for the reminder. :thumbsup:

    Ha! I'm dealing with a Robin that likes spending hours sparring with himself/herself on my back glass and sh#tting himself/herself to death the whole while. Saw the Robin this morning early sparring with it's reflection in my back glass jumping up and down on my tonneau cover so I go out and roll up my TruXedo Sentry tonneau and bring it in the apt. - then I look out and the Robin is sparring on the passenger window and sh#tting all over my mirror. I moved my truck to the other side of the building hoping it moves on. #fingers crossed!

    A ratty old blue chebby S-10 parked out in the parking lot the Robin didn't find it as fun to sh#t on and spar with as my shiny new Tacoma and new Sentry tonneau cover so he moved on.

    Does the original Aeroskin have the raised portion or is it flat all the way across. I’d like to add one just for paint protection but I’d rather not have the spoiler like the Aeroskin II. Thanks for info if anyone knows

    I put them on all my vehicles when new - I usually get a genuine OEM thrown in on the deal (probably made by another manufacturer but fits good and a OEM part number). Our Honda Civic had a large stone bounce off it which left a gouge on the bug shield but missed the windshield was saved. Civic's are famous for getting chipped hoods but mine has very few. These shields can save you a lot of money over the life of your vehicle and don't really look that bad if you get a good one and really not that expensive.

    It is flat. If you can find one in matte black that would be the way to go. I had the original Aeroskin (Smoke color) on a 2015 chebby colorado and it showed scratches real bad.
