Ideas and photos on how to attach bed cover to bed top..??


New Member
just purchased this old bucket, built in late 1960's and trying to get ideas on how to better attach the bed cover to top of bed?? it now just has 2 studs with wingnuts holding it on on either side...Please help.. thanks ..
In my case, I also just have two studs with Nyloc nuts holding it down firmly. If you need more accessibility, you might consider a couple of hood pins, like Cooter uses on his bucket.

cooters T bucket build
WOW!! thanks very much ...a lot of great ideas here..looks like I have found the way I will be doing mine.
again many thanks.
peace be with you.
I plan to hinge my lid at it's front . Haven't decided on the rear portion yet. An early m.g.b trunk lock would be nice.
Hinged at rear with two linear actuators to open it:

I've forgotten how to load pics, but that link will show it.
That link does not work for me........does it work for others?
Need to sign in. Not going to do that.
Potvin..... I'm sure you can figure it out again.
Woof Woof.
Not loosing it, just need a 'nudge' now and then. Ask my wife... she is always nudging me back to reality.
That Works fine I can see................
