50 Ford Truck - Power Bed Cover
This customer requested a Custom built Aluminum bed cover for his project. As seen we have built an X brace to keep the wide and long cover stiff to withstand many years of use.
We simply fabricated some square wedges to keep the brace tight and a flat surface to tighten the threaded rod firmly.
Another view of the wedges.
Custom cylinders are in place to raise and lower the cover. These are matched to open and close at the precise time to keep the cover dead on straight. We have installed an electronic operated key pad to open and close the cover.
In addition we fabricated an aluminum channel bracing system to keep the large panel from moving in the future as Aluminum is fragile soft material.
In place and checked with a level over a period of time the new cover withstands the test and is ready for action.
