    See if you can get in touch with @DrSarabi here on the forum. She seems to know where to get all the goodies.

    Kaminari Aerodynamics manufactures a nice tonneau, and it is one sold on Thunderbird Specialties (but less expensive!)
    http://www.kaminari.com/catalog/15
    Their installation instructions are vague and the drawdown latches they included were too big. I will be working on my tonneau this weekend and will update with some pictures later.
    Thunderbird Specialties also has 2 other hard tonneau covers. The roadster was a bit too big for my taste:

    Or a flat tonneau with a shaped edge:

    All need to be prepped and painted.

    Hey Doc, the Roadster Style unit looks like it has glass that comes down into the rear area of the Bird behind the seats. Am I seeing that correctly? It also says it is a one piece design, is it intended only for California, New Mexico, and Arizona where it hardly ever rains? A little impossible to get something that big into ones trunk to put the top up during a sudden thunderstorm.

    The fiberglass comes down between the seats 'waterfall' style, much like hard tonneaus I have seen on Corvettes. It doesn't require any modification of the passenger compartment to install, but the one piece design just won't work in the St. Louis area .
    The Kaminari tonneau can fit in the TBird trunk, if you put the covers on and maneuver them very carefully (and have the trunk mostly empty LOL).
    So far I haven't had the chance to use my tonneau, but will post pictures when I do.
