Rising Tonneau Cover

Okay I wasn't sure where i should put this thread and it isn't truck specific so i put it here.

Anyways i have a tonneau cover that hinges in the front like a normal tonneau cover, And i wanted to know how to convert it to a rising straight up tonneau cover. I know i would probably need sometime of linear actuator and some type of track system.

If anyone could shed some light on the subject it would be great

I dont know yet. I dont know if the actuators will actually support the tonneau cover all by themselves or i would have to fab up a a rail or something so they dont fall over on them selves. And at 100$ a peice i was looking at only using 2 one on each side.

But they could collapse forward or backward thats why i might need a very stiff rail system
