exactly, i will never be able to get it off, which means i will never be able 
to open my decklid, which means i will never know if there is anything wrong 
with the bus, which means i can drive happily and not worry about that weird 
thing i saw under the hood or my oil level or the temperature, i will just 
assume it is all there because i can't open the decklid. 
 
just kidding about the duct tape...i kknow that is a sigh of relief for some of 
ya'll. although i did use it to patch a hole in the canvas. works great to. 
 
i actually have some of that foam you are talking about i will try it tonight. 
either that or special note for ya'll that like to "fix" things. half inch soft 
rubber hose works great as a door seal. ;-)
