$5 DIY Half-tonneau

Just thought I'd share my latest little project. I found an aluminum-framed dry erase board at a garage sale for $1. It is 36" x 60", the exact dimensions I needed for a half-tonneau. So, I picked up a few nuts and bolts and a can of spray paint for $4. Then I fab'd a few "clamps" out of some one-by. I took the marker shelf off of the board and then reattached it backwards, forming a nice horizontal support for the front of the cover. The top of the tailgate supports the rear. One of the clamps didn't hold up so well, and will need to be remade. Other than that, looks pretty darn good!
