Doesn't it just snap to the shell? I would like to get rid of the metal if I could.

Guessing would drill holes in shell and rivet in the snap button receivers. Might be different with a fiver.

Why not get colour matching Line-X done?

I just peeled all the foam liner off ours. One side of ours came loose in a big wind day and ruined the snap and tore the fabric around it. I took it to a boat cover place and they fixed it up. I asked about how much fabricating new ones would cost and it was significantly less than ordering new ones.

Hmmm. I would hate to drill holes in the shell. I still haven't drilled the holes for my solar yet. Has anyone done the Line-X?

I had a good discussion with ETI a year ago about Line-X and the cost would have been $500. I have also discussed it with the Line-X people here when I was having the truck box done. The Storage box was $700 and has a Line-X coat on it and so far I can't see any damage. We are planning a run up the Alcan Highway in several years so I will try to figure out if any additional protection will be needed. Loren

Thanks Loren, I'll keep the Line-X in mind. One advantage of the frame mounted plates on the 5th is that I can slide them to the outside to gain a little more coverage to keep mud and tar off the awning arms.

$500 (CAD I presume) seems fairly reasonable, especially as a colour match. I was quoted $600 to do my truck bed (black though), and negotiated down to $540. A heck of a lot more to doing the truck bed, as it included R&R of the 2 bed lights, 8 tie down anchors, and other connectors.

So it looks like Line-X or something similar would be my best bet for a 5th wheel rock guard. Does anyone know if the white fades to yellow over time? I guess even if does you can always use krylon paint to touch it up. Thanks.
