I used some decking sealer to help with water protection. But because the sealer sinks into the wood it made some of the paint come off.

You could probably get by with 1/4 to 1/2 inch plywood if you support it. The furring strips are cheap $1 per 8' board, for supports & they are light. My cover can support my weight (180 lbs) but that is laying down. I don't think I would want to risk standing on it.

You just need a strong support toward the cab & sturdy henge's there. Make sure you reinforce the plywood where the henge are.

I am most likely going to cover it with a Sunbrella canvas material. I can pick up enough to do the job on Ebay for under $20. Will go with red or black.

I am also looking into some sort of hood lift / strut to make the half closer to the cab easier to open.
