Build yourself a Canvas Topper out of Military Tarp

canvas top on 4runnerThere's 2 articles, by Johnny Lange, and they do a pretty good job of explaing how to build a top.

The first link explains what he did to build the canvas top for his 83 longbed pickup. The second link explains how he build the top on the left for his 1st Gen 4runner.

The 4runner writeup is more thorough and has more pictures. Since they're basically the same, use both set of images to get a good feel for the project!
