    You could always fab up the top and sides as seperate pieces and attach with Dzus fasteners. The mounting tabs would be visible when the pieces were removed. It's been done lots of times, look at some of the Bonneville cars.

    I just don't understand the animosity. You have a simple question asked and we already have the words wuss, douche bag and shit head handed out. Ain't like the guy asked how to glue a doll head on the fender. Jeesh.

    You need a hood made like window blinds. Pull a string and up it goes on sunny days. Rain comes pull the string and down goes the hood sides. Damn that's genius!

    I acctualy have had the misfortune to see a Hot Rod with a tonneau cover for a hood.

    ( It probably was marine vinyl, and it was the same color as the body...Kinda...)

    It looked like crap.

    I think this Tread is done.
