Tested out the window screen socks and they worked great. Zero bugs overnight and kids loved it.

you might have a viable future product in the works there. I've slept in my 110 a few times and I definitely get how this would be a huge help. I love how simple and effective is sounds.

I'm starting to get blisters from cutting these horse stall mats. Used four of the 1/2" 3' X 4' mats to finish the rear seat area and load space. I used a Forster wood bit to relieve the back where the floor bolts were to get it to sit flat, everything else was cut with a utility knife.

Very nice. Next time use soapy water and they are much easier to cut.

Razor knife seemed to work best just a bit time consuming. I did initially try a circular saw, not good. It two seconds the house smelled of burning rubber, wife didn't appreciate that

I bought one of these a while back and it has turned into a very valuable tool.

Not me, no. The dude just above me (driver). He wanted to use my truck though! The wedding coordinator commented she thought it was a better entrance than the groom who came in by helicoper. So I'll call that a win. I just wish I had washed it first...

Yes-^^ this ^^

I have a tiny spray bottle; just a few drops of dishwashing soap + water, 9:1 ratio.

Use a sharp razor or carpet blade and it will cut rubber like buttah...

Open carry during the cutting is optionsal but encouraged.
