Well, the rock guards I bought from Airstream via Inland DID have "padded" rubber seals along the edges...very classy, never really need to take the guards off except for cleaning, and all the pins, hinge, etc. come with them complete. It is really worth it to go that route as cheap looks cheap and some of the dumb ideas out there like using corrugated fiberglas will blow away for sure. Save up and go the right route. Call Andy!!!
