    Thanks all, for the kind comments. :oops:

    And Col, your assistance with advice in this project was invaluable!

    Maybe I should keep it in the parts drawer above the engine bay, just in case? :rolleyes:

    Just saw this Grant, bloody well done mate, well deserved. I'm trying to talk the minister for war and finance into letting me buy nils T3. One of each model is my ultimate aim;)

    Thanks Jeff & Mark...;)

    Wife's SAAB went in for a service, at the same time the Kanga Banga's starter motor collapsed, so empty driveway, and the only mode of transport was the SC!

    Glad I put it back on the road for this week! :D

    Since fitting the Tonneaux cover, I'm now using around 2.2 less litres of fuel per 100kms. :eek:

    Seems the air drag of the rear tail gate is quite substantial!

    At this rate of fuel saving, the cost of the cover will pay for itself with fuel cost savings alone! :rolleyes:

    On one hand it doesnt surprise me given the objective in streamlining is to keep air attached and present a small amount of drag .
    But it is good to see the numbers. :)
    Nice result.
