What is the closes modern equivalent for DuPont Fabrikoid

I want to have some runningboard boxes made and cover them with black covers that snap on. I think the original ones were covered in Fabrokoid. This is that black faux leather stuff that you have all probably seen on trunks etc that is usually shrunken and cracked. I suppose the closest modern mater...

Re: Death Valley

yes, they do have rules about group size. I think four vehicles and 12 people is the max. I would have to look at the rule specifically but I think that is the number of people who can camp together in one spot in the back country not the number of cars that look the same that are allowed to drive d...
