Tonneau Covers

I searched and only 3 threads with barely any info.

Has anyone found a Tonneau Cover from another vehicle that can be modified to fit?

No one has any that were specifically MADE for the REPU. Because it's such a rare gem.


Dan had one that was plug and play no modification needed. a generic one from Pep Boys. I can't find it in their stores now, they're not a big seller and not stocked.

I have researched tonneaus and the 1980 shortbed Chevy Luv bed is very close. And, some Luv owners take a dodge dakota SPORT shortbed tonneau, the new high tech rail type, and shorten it a few inches where it meets the cab. They screwed the tonneau rails directly on top of the bed rails instead of clamping them to the bed rails.

The Saddleman brand, part# 92071-01 looks very promising. And is listed for the 77-84 Mazda shortbed, and the Luv shortbed.

http://www.autoenhance.com/whataretonneau.html These guys said to call them with measurements and they'll come up with something.

The dodge dakoda SPORT one the Luv guys use is here:

74 REPU Lawn Green
81 Rx-7 racecar. 12a J-

Thanks Brad, I think I will try the Dakota Sport model in a couple of weeks.
