Looking to see if anyone has any ideas for a high end indoor only truck cover for the 47-54 COEs? Building myself a pageant queen and would like to protect the investment. Will be indoors at all times. Thought about the DUSTOP for a standard pickup but will have to check the dimensions a little closer to see if it would work (I think it would be too short, height-wise). Only really care about the cab, hood, fenders and steps.

Thx,
Derek

Old blankets and/or bed sheets work about as good as anything. Cheap, too!

I used a pick-up truck cover - held tight with bungee cords (1954 Z-Series 2 ton COE).

Nice cover.

Where did you get it?

How far back would it cover a bed?

Thanks
