    This is on my tow vehicle but I am happy with the way it is turning out so far and after all it is an 85 GMC shortbox. Made my own custom grill to. I love autocad... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Needs a good latch setup and struts yet but almost there. What do ya think....

    I dig that hinge. Makes it much more versitale. Might want to make a way to latch it in the open position, too.

    Was gona go with the small gas struts you see on hatch back cars. Only concerned that they will be too stiff as the lid is very light.
