Cold weather in Florida? Unbelievable! Can remenber 35F° outside Devil's Ear , but 68° F insde Devil's Ear during a cavern dive. That was cold!
Looks like a cool build. Your palm tree looks like a few of mine after the cold weather we just had.

Usually I use half round stripes to replicate Tuck'n'Roll. This method I saw the first time in a posting from Steve Boutte. Steve thanks for sharing this technique.
Silicon - use your favorite one
Arcyl paint i.e. Schmiecke or Lucas
Tuck'n'Roll tonneau cover i.e. '59 Chevrolet El camino from amt
Make a mold of the tonneau cover.
Pure some of the archly paint in to the mold
Let it dry
Peel it of the mold
Cut to the size that you need
Modified seat from '49 Mercury from amy
Yellow arcyl Tuck'n'Roll added to the seat
