    That’s the up n down one? Not the fold? It does look good. Keeps the bed dry?

    Had to look in old emails to see what I ordered.....

    Tonno Pro Tonno Fold, Soft Folding Truck Bed Tonneau Cover | 42-111 | Fits 1973-1987 GM C10 8' Bed


    Its a tri-fold panel setup. Only thing you have to watch is to make sure the clamps are folded flat when you fold the tonneau over more than one panel (if that makes sense). I dont think you could put a hole in it but never know. Truck sits out all year - meant to get a cover but didn't in time - definitely will shortly as glass and all have to come out for repaint. So currently the truck looks just like the pic and is sitting outside. In the bed ATM is boxes of new parts I had no room for anywhere else - they are bone dry. I love it - one of those things I may look for another and put it away so in case anything happened to this one, I have one just as good to replace it with (learn that restoring old 4-N cars...whats available and quality today - wont be tomorrow when you need another). lol

    Another thing.....its really light so one person on-off is a breeze. Cleans up the look too....and you know the rule - gotta look good to be good. :p

    [mention]Doppleganger [/mention] Can you open just the flap closest to the cab? I have a toolbox in my bed that’s sits below the bed rails and I frequently access it, so that’s one of my main concerns.

    I bought a Truxsport for my 87. It's a rolling cover. I really like it...Good fit, good quality and the price was very reasonable. 020.JPG 015.JPG

    Sorry - didn't see this til now.

    You cant open the furthest forward flap because thats where one set of the clamps are (other set is the rear panel).
