Bed Cover

Depending on what look you're going after, there's a ton of places that sell covers. I'm looking for a certain time period on my build, and plan on having a boat canvas type cover with stainless snaps or turns. A couple bows will keep it it taught.

Ok great info. Iím looking to buy or maybe build it myself. I have dedicated the truck to the memory of my father, son-in-law, and my military service. I have named it the ďOle Hound DogĒ after the B17 that my father flew in WWII. Since then both my son-in-law and I have served in Iraq. I want a flat surface that I can have a map of Europe and Iraq painted on with all the places that my fatherís plane bombed and where my son-in-law and I served. I was thinking aluminum sheets riveted to an aluminum frame to look like the side of a B17.
