If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?

Make sure you don't make something air tight that moisture would condense in but some kind of shield might be a good idea.

You were wise to pass on that one, if he used plywood in the doors there's no telling what else he hacked up.

Here, you'll need this...

For that price you might as well spring for the Ford one.

The cover is not super necessary. The issue with them was that they were originally placed right up against the frame. The dirt and crap that collects in there rots out the back of the module. The revised stand-off bolts pretty much eliminate that issue. Just coat the back of it in a good epoxy spray paint before installing it.
