I just purchased a Hino box truck that I am converting into a RV toy hauler, need some help on how I can make the connection from the driver cab to the box? The distance between the two is approximately 5 inches.
Thanks,
Tim

We used a sawzall and a die grinder (after removing the seats and so forth). then I contacted uni-grip and bought the accordion seal from them. After dry fitting the seal, I used some weather strip adhesive to make it air tight.

be sure that while dry fitting, you smooth out any hard corners and jagged edges with you die grinder.

Suggest use something like PL3000 urthane sealer instead of weather strip cement. It has more body & will fill small gaps much better than w-strip stuff (IMHO)
