Fiberglass tonneau cover with smoke stacks???

Does anyone have pictures of a fiberglass tonneau cover with smoke stacks? I've heard it has been done but I haven't found any pictures to prove it. I bought a used tonneau cover and I'm going to try it but thought I would see if anyone had seen it done.

I don't know that I've ever seen it done with a fiberglass cover. The holes would have to be a couple of pretty large ovals as to not hit the stacks when you open the cover.

That's what I was figuring. Giving enough room when it opened, otherwise it will hit. I've seen it done with soft covers.

Man, they'd have to be some pretty good sized holes. Also wondering how the gelcoat on the fiberglass would hold up to the heat.

You could move the hinge after the stacks

The hinges mount to the rear cross rail

I know. You would have to cut the cover right after the stacks and build a support for the hinge. So you would have a 16" or so solid mounted section with the hinge hooked to that then you have the rest go up and down. Ya it might be a lot of work but it would look awesome when finished. Then you could Finnish off the stacks with some chrome bezels to protect the cover and cover any heat damage.
