I havnt renewed the tags and inspection yet, I'll be doing that at the end of the month. So basically I have not got over 40 mph yet in it (It will only go about 50 with my gearing). But at 40 it holds fine and doesn't balloon at this point. When taking it on the highway (on my trailer) I plan on either using ratchet straps to help keep it down or removing it temporarily to be sure it does not wip. I'd hate for the buttons to tear off or something.
I will be covering the tube doors sometime soon, I just ran out of time to mess with it for now so it will be a few weeks or so before I cover them.
Tailgate : I am planning on using some material if I have enough left over to make a net type tailgate. If I don't have enough left over I'll probably just buy one for a compact truck and install it.
