1997 Defender 90 retractable tonneau cover?

Has anyone ever custom built a retractable tonneau cover for their 97 d90. I have been toying with the idea and can't seem to find anything online. I would prefer more security than a soft tonneau cover and something that would allow more loadspace than the custom drawer/cabinet lockers I have seen. Any ideas are much appreciated. Thanks and cheers in advance!

Interesting idea but never tried it.

Doesn't seem like something that would need to be specific to a 1997 Defender 90.

Wasn't sure if the roll cage was different between the model years. That is why I specified.

Eh, slightly, but only vs. 1994's, and even then I can't picture that difference really impacting any designs. The tonneau would likely only make contact with the inner lip of the tub, since you're not going to have retractable doors over the top of the tub because the cage is there. Inner tub diameters are all the same though, so you may venture out and see if it's something that someone in the UK has fabbed up for production.

I really think something like that could be the best option for storage and security. I will keep looking and let you know if I find anything.
