I happened across a photo of the Trillium I was talking about (with the replacement adhesive molding) while searching something else, so I thought I would post a photo. It was previously owned by forum member Charlie C - I looked at it when a subsequent owner had it for sale (and I believe another forum member ended up buying it).

Anyway, as I understand it, Charlie C removed the original riveted on belly band, sealed the holes (not sure if he removed the steel plates or not) and then applied this adhesive molding, which was originally meant for... a Chevy pickup or the like.

Here's a couple of pictures of a "smooth Boler". Behind the swing out box on the rear bumper is an access door so that the owner can get his surfboard inside. He has made new window mouldings for the swing-out glass. They appear to be similar to those from a van.

That is smooth! I've always liked the "Saturn effect" of the Boler belly-band, but that is really nice looking! Brings out the rounded shape more than I would have thought.

Wow Brandy, that is a good eye you have. I think I would have went nuts trying to find that leak. Cool.
