If I were building this to go into just a regular racing class I would build a buck and mold it in carbon fiber, but since its Le Mons, I need to keep costs way, way down, as such it will be covered in red Cholorplast.

With much trepidation I am thinking of drilling into the cab and screwing in hinges that way I can lift the whole assembly up and not lose total function of the bed should I need it. I'll be installing a latch at the rear and possible some guide pins on the bed side tops. Eventually this thing will also be getting some gurney flaps at the trailing edge as well as a proper wing to keep the extremely light weight rear end planted.
