try ebay for the post hole covers........i do believe i seen them on there. i was lookin at this cover online and it stated that it isnt totally waterproof,they said it might leak slightly on the tailgate end. i really do like this cover and would only need it to cover the bed mostly as i dont haul alot. how is the fit on your tailgate? it looks great from what i can telll by your pic.

Thanks I'll try ebay.

I think with the peragon cover you have to install and adjusted it exactly to what the manual says. It's a pain in the arse, especially if you do it by yourself. The gap between the tail gate and the rear end of the rails has to be exactly 3/16"s...while keeping the vertical gap between siderails and bed also to 3/16"s, and the horizontal gap evenly on both sides. That allows the seal on the rearmost panel to seal against the tailgate properly. Not sure if it's totally waterproof, but to be honest man, I wasn't looking for a waterproof cover. My decision to go with the peragon was primarily because of looks, then function (ease of folding away), and then having all that for a fair price.

I think for total waterproofing the best cover would be one of those paintable one piece covers. Personally, I don't like the looks of those.

Are you referring to the drilled holes? I used a marine salt water rust protector spray.

BTW, we had some nasty weather with a tornado, rain, and hail. When I opened the tailgate, the entire bed was dry.
