ah ok I thought it was a MTL based club or something.
PM me if you ever go wheeling, I'm sick and tired of ATV sized trails with mud pits in Terrebonne.

I like it.
I plan to close the back of the seat too next summer...

I completed the cover before leaving and it worked great.

I completed phase 2 from tailgate to roll cage.
Added stability bars under the cover to reduce flex.

You have to fold the seat about half way forward, and then when you put it back hold the headrest so it can't go back up into position. You notice he has the bungee cords on it, the headrests will have to be strapped down in some way to keep from popping back up. It's amazing how much they obstruct your view!

I'm thinking of making one but covering it with spray bed liner to protect the wood from water damage.

I was going to go this route but ordered a Tuffy Security Deck instead. I couldn't find sheets of the aluminum diamond plate easily.

Painting it seems like a very good idea. In fact anyone doing this and not putting something on the wood is begging for warping, mold and mildew problems, maybe even rot eventually. If it gets muddy I would want to be able to hose it off.

The problem with bed liner is that it is so thick that I can see it coming off in sheets with some flexing and vibration on the wooden deck. Most definitely prime well first to set up a good surface for the bed liner to bond to. Primer penetrates the wood grain and grabs hold, then the top coat has something good to bond to and won't just pull, peel or flake off.

Sounds tempting, but I think I would do a demo first to see what the properties of wood and bed liner together are like.

I've never worked with bed liner so thanks for the info. So would the liner not soak into the raw wood at all?
If I just covered it in carpet what would be a good way to "waterproof" the wood? Some kind of sealant? Do they have pressure treated plywood?

I think bed liner is too thick to soak into the wood at all, it will stick to the surface, and that might be enough. I don't know for sure.

I would probably just get some primer like Bins, Kilz, Bullseye which are good primer sealers. Bins is alcohol based, heavy smell going on, but is probably the best, or Kilz. Once it is dry there is no odor.

It is not recommended to use products meant for outside on inside (confined spaces) applications. Even after dry exterior paint, stain, sealers are still gassing off.

There is pressure treated plywood, it's ultra over kill for this application and loaded with toxic chemicals, although not as much as it used to.

Or use polyurethane on it which is exactly what it is intended to do, repel water.
