That's pretty cool... what did you use for the netting and how's it attached?

I took an old tent and cut and stitched to the size/shape i needed. Then I stitched velcro around the edges and then i attached black velcro around the perimiter of the shell and bed. goes up in about 20 seconds and doesnt look tacky when its not up. I have put it up and left the tailgate and window open while driving just to test the integrity

If you pull all the glass and trim yourself they can usually shoot it cheaper (or at least better). 90% of a good paint job is prep, and masking always looks bad.

Got the racks back on today. Think it looks a ton better with the racks than without.
