I thought some of you might be interested in this. I do some woodworking as a hobby. Earlier this week I finished building a retail display rack for work. I finished it with three coats of lacquer on Sunday evening and loaded it into the back of the AV to deliver on Monday. If you are familier with wood finishes or even just spray paint then you know that they give off solvent vapors for days or weeks after you spray them. I figured that when I got into the cab of the AV on Monday morning the smell from the lacquer would be very strong. I was wrong! I couldn't even smell it! The midgate seals well enought that the vapors couldn't get into the cab. I am writing this on thursday of the same week and the display, installed at work, is still giving off enought stink that you can smell it when you get within about 6 feet of it. There has been some discussion of how well the midgate seals, at least on my AV the anwser is Very well indeed.
