INSTALLING WEATHER STRIPPING ON THE CBC
After verifying that the CBC (1) has been raised to an operational position, the CBC must be lifted and
placed on supporting blocks (2) in order to gain access to the lower edge of the CBC for the installation of
the weather stripping. A hoisting sling must be attached to lift the CBC in accordance with WP 0005.
When initially positioning the blocks, it is best to place them first at the fore and aft ends to allow access
to the left and right sides of the CBC and then to move them to the left and right sides to gain access to
the fore and aft ends.
Once the CBC has been safely blocked, the weather stripping can be installed. Two thicknesses of
weather stripping are included with the mounting plate installation kit, 3/16 inch and 1/8 inch. They are
both supplied in rolls of 50 feet.
Apply the 3/16 inch weather stripping (3) to the bottom edge (4) of the Cargo Bed Cover (1) by removing
the protective backing (5) from the weather stripping and pressing the adhesive side (6) into position. Do
NOT apply the weather stripping to the bottom of the carrier mounting angles (7). Be sure to allow the
weather stripping to extend beyond the corners of the CBC by approximately 2 inches.
Add a layer of 1/8 inch thick weather stripping (8) over the initial layer of 3/16 thick weather stripping (3).
Be sure to stagger the joints when applying the second layer so that a weather stripping joint on the first
layer is not directly over a joint on the second layer. When complete, the total thickness of the weather
stripping on the underside of the CBC should be 5/16 inch (9).
In order to apply the weather stripping around the entire perimeter of the CBC, it will be necessary to lift
the CBC and reposition the blocks (2). Continue applying the 3/16 inch weather stripping (3) and 1/8 inch
weather stripping (8) around the entire bottom edge of the CBC (4) as well as the underside of the
