Pics of my new Camper Shell / Topper. Vista Alpine Series 500 More Pictures Added!!

K, got my new shell installed yesterday. I took pictures of the interior, it was too dark to get shots of the outside. I'll post some more pictures soon.

First impression is that the shell looks great. Flows very smoothly with the lines of the truck. Lots of wax still left on it from the manufacturer, but I'll clean that up soon.

The interior of the shell is very nice also. The fold down/sliding window combo works great. Glad I got it. Interior carpet liner looks great also.

There is one thing I don't like about the shell. It comes down so low on the interior, that I can't use the stock sized cleats on the side rails. They still fit up front though. I think a set of mini cleats will fit. I might pick up one set.

I'm also gonna add a set of D rings up front, which I have been meaning to do for a while now anyways.

I found this toyota dealer that sells the parts for a decent price, and shipping is only $5, compared to a lot of other sites that are charging any where from $12-19 for shipping.

$55 shipped for a set of D rings and 1 pair of mini cleats.

I also air'd up my new Truck Bedzzzz. Looks like it'll work great. There's a little bit of a gap between the mattress and the fender well, but thats nothing a couple pillows or towels can't fix.
