    Default Bakkie dust-proofing...

    Searched the forums back and forth, and haven't found something (yet) that will work.... (also posted in the Isuzu thread)

    My load bed was rubberized when I bought it, and until now, I've not needed it dust proofed... but I'm planning a trip to Namibia next year, and it needs to get sorted...

    My bit problem is the giant chasms where the top of the load bed meets the top of the tail gate... none of the solutions I've found are able to seal this bit... Anyone have an idea?

    Have you tried this: http://www.4x4direct.co.za/838-dust-proofing

    And lots sponges. You can even try air filter oil (like motorbikes use) on the sponges but it can be messy

    Looked at those, but I don't see how it'll seal at the top (in the pics)... I might just need to visit them, and see in person, but based on those pics, not going to work

    The only way to successfully dustproof a bakkie's loadbin, is to get positive pressure in it. If you have a canopy, open the front window (the one between the cab and canopy) or get one of those vents that let air in from the front.

    Bob, I bought a Dust Kit from Toyota, I'm sure GM also will have, or buy a "universal" one from various outlets - Frontrunner, etc etc.

    Then obviously keep a flap/window open, otherwise it WILL leak dust.

    Even the Toyota Dust Kit comes with oil sponges that you can fill visible holes etc etc.

    I've come to the conclusion that NO canopy will be completely dust free - you can just try make it less.

    Hierdie tipe stone deflectors is stof makers. Hulle skep n vortex agter die kar en dan stof jou kappie lekker,geen venster oopmaak of wat help nie veel nie.
    Maar dis nie so erg dat jou kos vol sand raak nie.
