I am new here and would like to thank you for your great information and Ideas. I have a 060 Skamper on a 1985 F150. After 3 years, I am finally getting to use it. As you I have made modifications and have more to make. One issue i had was that when lowering the canvas was difficult to get pulled in all the way. A canvas shop put a few snaps and ribbon type loops with a rope thru them. It works great.
