I use thin styrene sheet (.010 or .015 ) to cover the truck bed. I add strips of styrene ( .030 ) around the edge of the cover and round the outside edge, this locks the cover in place when finished. Sometimes I must use a thinner or no piece at the front edge of the bed because of the closeness of the cab. To finish you can cover with thin leather or fabric or you can shoot the cover with Faux Fabrix or something similar then finish with SEM Vinyl spray. It looks just like a naugahyde cover. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy modeling :P
