Tonneau Covers are one of the necessary parts of a car. When you need to take something with your car, it is important that it should not be spoiled by rain or dust. So it is important to cover the backside of the car with it. Here are the steps by which you can follow the process of a new Tonneau Covers instalment.
Step 1 - First of all read the instructions fully and give everything out where it belongs and remember, you are doing a custom installation that requires alignment with the lines of the truck bed. You have to go ahead as if you only get one chance to do it right. Select the location of the holes and rails for future reference.
Step 2 - Secondly connect the rails It is a good idea to leave things loose until final adjustment. Go with the manual that came with your tonneau cover, and connect your car rails. They will most likely either bolt in pre-drilled holes or snap-on under your rail covers.
Step 3 - And now install any seals with the instructions, install any seals that need to be installed. Make sure each seal is tight before tightening any bolts.
Step 4 - This is the time to install the top, place the top on and fasten it to the rails. The top should just snap on the rails.
Step 5 - Lastly check and adjust accordingly. After that check the seals for potential leaking spots. Adjust the connections for free and easy movement of the top. The best place to check for leaks is in your driveway.
Step 6 - Simply grab your hose, and spray the truck bed down, wait a few minutes, then open the cover and check if water leaked inside. Waiting until after a downpour or snowfall may damage your load. And this is how your desired Tonneau Covers will set up for your car.
