Has anyone here ever made their own tonneau cover? If so what did you make it out of and was it worth it?
If I do i'm probably going to make it fiberglass composite using a 1/8" piece of luan for the center. Then i'll simply paint it body color and it will look like its fiberglass. It will be fairly strong and lightweight.
I'm not too crazy about drilling holes for supports in my bed. Anyone have any ideas on that?
Why do I want to do this? Because a few pieces of luan, a quart of epoxy, some supports and a quart of paint costs around $100.
I could build one out of metal too I suppose. I like this idea better though.
Alright opinions? Ideas? Experience?
