Hmmmm.... I forgot about that. I think that I'll still use them, smells not an issue. There's far too many mosquitoes to ever open the windows. As for leeching, some plastic will stop that will it not?
Maybe I'll try free hand milling with my gutless 42cc chain saw and make my own timbers. It's not like they have to be square, strate, or level! It's not like my stuff ever meets thoes requirments anyway! ;)
