Email me if you want see some pictures of how I did this on our TR6 and I will
send them along. To make the cuts, you will need some heavy duty upholstery
shears and to make it decent looking, you will need some material similar to
the tonneau, some binding material, extra snaps, and access to a heavy duty
upholstery sewing machine. Some have used velcro for the overlap of the cuts
you will make rather than snaps, but I did not go this way because the velcro
tends to collect lint, dirt and pollen.
