I have heard that Sealing kits for Dmax utes making it dust proof when a after market canopy (ARB) is fitted.

Have tried Clarke Rubber bits and pieces short lived.

Any thoughts please?

I have used Clark Rubber with success, 25x25mm black rubber did the trick.

Need to run it down the sides and across the bottom.

You will still get some dust come in, probably using a roof vent to pressurise the canopy would help as well.

Rather than trying to seal the canopy, think about pressurising it to restrict dust entry.
ARB supply a vent for their canopy for just this reason and it works.
Airflow into the vent creates a positive pressure inside the canopy and thus restricts the entry of dust.
The only thing I get is a minor layer of dust along the bottom of the tailgate and this is easily brushed out.

Hi Tony, if you have a sliding window on your canopy slide it open one notch, this pressurises the canopy sufficiently so you'll eliminate most of the dust problems.

Used this method for years on my old BT50 and it works fine on my new D Max as well.
