Hey guys/gals.. i just washed the van and noticed that both of our aluminess bumper hatch doors (one upfront with winch inside and one outback with gear inside) get flooded with water while washing and of course while driving in a wet environment.
Has anyone sealed these with any double stick rubber or anything?
My straps, axe, super syphon were all floating in water in the back and all muddy. I dont want my stuff all nasty every time i use it.

I only have the rear Aluminess with hatch door. I don't think there's a way to seal the door waterproof 100%, but I greatly reduced the entry of water and dust by applying a small stick-on rubber seal strip along the edge of the door. It makes it MUCH tighter to close, but helps a lot.
I did the same thing, and while not waterproof it helps alot. Got the small size brown one.
I think I have extra and you can have it as long as I can find it.
I can show you mine at the Meet & Greet on Saturday.
