Well this tonneau cover is very easy to make and can be finished in a couple of hours.
It is good for protecting stereo equipment from the elements or deterring thefts.

Saw, drill and stapler

Ok start by measuring from the back window to just past the fourth bolt. Then measures from the driver side to the passenger side. You are measuring from the window because it needs to go up so you can secure the tail gate. Then mark your plywood and remember measures twice, cut once. Cut out the basic shape.
Then put it up on the bronco and measures the space where the seats go and the hole for the handle for the tail gate. And now cut it out.
Put it back up for a test fit and measures the place for the bolts.
Then drill the holes and test fit one more time.
Now its time to put the vinyl on.
Places the plywood on the vinyl and cut off the extra material.
Now this is the hard part cut, fold and staple the vinyl to the plywood not your colths.
Ok find the holes and open them up with a drill bit.
Put it back on and bolt it down.
I made this top for about $20. The plywood is easy to find at any hardware store. the hard part is picking which wood to buy. The vinyl I found in down town L.A. from $16 to $9. The other idea I had was to make a frame out of 2X4’s for support, I wanted to make it strong so you can stand on it. Later I will work on that but this is good for now.
