CARGO BED COVER (CBC), TYPE IV, 5 T CARGO TRUCK, MTV, AND MTV TRAILER
INSTALLING WEATHER STRIPPING TO THE MOUNTING PLATE COMPONENTS
There are four components to the mounting plate assembly, a front section (1), rear section (2), left side
(3), and right side (4). Weather stripping must be installed on the side of each mounting plate component
where the mounting plate contacts the vehicle bed. Weather stripping is also applied on the ends (5) of
each side plate (3,4) where the plates will eventually butt against the front (1) and rear sections (2).
To install the weather stripping to the mounting plate components, position each component on a work
surface so that the marked side of the mounting plate faces up. Remember that this will be the side of the
mounting plate that will contact the vehicle bed once it is installed on the CBC and secured to the vehicle.
Position the mounting plate components as shown so that the left (driver) side mounting plate (3) which is
labeled "ROADSIDE" is positioned on the RIGHT side of the work area and the right (passenger) side
mounting plate (4) which is labeled "CURBSIDE" is positioned on the LEFT side of the work area.
Remember that the mounting plate components are laid out upside down on the work area.
Remove the protective backing (6) from the 3/16 inch thick weather stripping (7) included with the
installation kit and apply the adhesive side of the weather stripping on the mounting plate component as
illustrated. An outline on the mounting plate shows where the weather stripping is to be applied. Sections
of weather stripping should be cut and applied at a right angle whenever the weather stripping changes
Continue applying the 3/16 inch weather stripping (7) until it has been applied to all mounting plate
Apply a layer of 1/8 inch weather stripping (8) on top of the 3/16 inch layer (7) already in place. Be sure to
stagger the joints (9) so that joints on the 3/16 inch and 1/8 inch layers are not in the same location. Press
all weather stripping firmly in place.
Apply a section of 3/16 inch thick weather stripping approximately 3-1/4 inches in length along each end
(5) of each side mounting plate section. This weather stripping will seal the areas where the side sections
butt up against the front and rear mounting plate sections when they are installed on the CBC.
