Stacks through a bed cover?

I am not sure, but this is what I plan on doing. I am going to get all my pipe underneith set in place. Then I will mark where the hole needs to be. Check it on the top side. Mark it and drill it. I would make sure you have enough room so that nothing rubs. I would not think the heat would be too much of an issue. Maybe a half inch to an inch on either side. I will hopefully know more tomorrow.

on that picture of the dodge in here somewhere he talks about cutting his soft cover where it streches ever so slightly and makes a nice tight fit and it didnt seem to have any issues as far as heat goes and it looked really nice!

I helped someone cut holes in a fiberglass top for his stacks and we left about a quater of an inch of space for the heat. He drove from alaska to georgia and never had a problem with the stacks getting hot enough to do any damage to the topper.

OK, that is what I was thinking. I am gonna cut the hole a hlaf inch bigger, and the stitch something around the hole so it looks nice, also thinking about doing something to keep moisture from soaking the whole bed and just keeping up as near the front as I can. I will get pics and let y'all know how it works.
