Ok gang,

I got some more play time in on this project, but at this point I need some feedback from you guys.

Would you prefer it to be functional only as a privacy cover?  Or as some of you asked about, would you want it to be strong enough to be load-bearing (be able to put stuff on top of it)?

There is a pretty significant difference in material cost between the two.  To make it purely a privacy cover, I can use 1/8 or 3/16 eucaboard which is priced decently.  To make it load-bearing, a more significant type of pressboard would need to be used, thus bringing the material cost up two to three times.  I'm also trying to keep in mind the waste aspect here, as there are only so many pieces I can get out of a stock board.  The more significant the board, the higher the cost of waste, which is also factored into the price to you guys of each unit.

Let me know what you guys prefer.

Cheers,
Nick

I go with the flow.
But I like stock.

On the flip side. I think the thicker would last longer with the heat beating on it.
Maybe prevent warping like mine.

If it's going to rest on the lift arms like the own cover, it'll only be able to hold lightweight loads anyway. Go with the stock thickness, is my thought.

It will be supported by the lift arms for sure, which is why we'd have to go with a more expensive composite if we want it load bearing.  Mine warped like crazy over the years as well.  I may have a solution for that though if do go with the eucaboard.

Plastics are an option, but will cost more than eucaboard.  And plastics will will need an accelerator adhesive for the upholstery.

Had some spare eucaboard from when I crated up a windshield last month.  Using the old crappy privacy cover from my '88 as a kind of reverse stencil.
