Req: Pics of white truck with folding tonneau cover?
 
I'm lookin for pics of a white truck with a folding tonneau cover, like Bakflip etc.?

Need to see how "bad" it looks!


Anyone tried to paint the folding tonneau cover? To match the truck that is...

Here is mine with the Bakflip. By the way, it is super easy to install and very versatile.
Good Luck.

Thanxs!

Any pics of it folded up?

Do you think it would be possible to paint the seperate parts of it to make it white to match the truck?

Here you go. Shows all levels of operation. When it is folded all the way up, it has 2 rods that will hold it in place while you drive(done it many times). As far as painting is cocerned, I would say no. I included some pictures of rubber seals that are in the middle of each individual section as well as a rubber seal that is on each side. To do it right, I believe you would have to dismantle the whole thing:SHOCKED:They must paint the cover black before any other parts are added.

Thanxs!

Is it tottally weather proof? Even during heavy rain / snow (melting etc)?

Is it "steady"? I think they say it can take 300 lbs, but if you step on it, will it take it?

99% rain proof. Never had it in snow. It would take the weight if you stepped where there is reinforcement, otherwise I would be careful where I stepped if you weigh 300 lbs. The panels inside are sort of like a honeycomb, light but sturdy.If you get snow I would go with a hard cover over a soft cover for durability.

Thanxs for the info!

Yepp, get some snow here, I live in Sweden ;)

99% rain proof? Does it drip in or what?

Do want a hard cover, beacause I think it looks really great when it's color matched to the truck, but do need the option of "folding" it away easy for larger transports...hm...
