Default Pick up canopy

Finally finished my canopy project and thought I'd share some photos.

Perfect, and that's what I'd like to do also if I had a pickup.

The top material came from LeBaron Bonney. They where the only one who had any in stock. I was impressed with the quality. Much better than the material I bought a few years ago from another vendor.

I built the canopy from scratch. I took ideas I liked from others I've seen and designed this one. I used a Model T reproduction tail light as a third brake light for added safety.

It was a fun project and draws a lot of attention.

Very nice work indeed! Looks like it was always there and all you need now is to show it off!!
