Hi-Cap Hood

I know this is a long shot, but does anybody have a pic of the rear a properly tied up hood on a HCPU? I was installing my new hood over the weekend, and figured most of it out, but the down straps in the back make no sense. Since the tailgate runs the full length of the opening, there's no where but the tailgate to hook the straps to. Which doesn't make a lot of sense if you actually open the tailgate.

Mine is the newer velcro and zipper type but the way they attach is the same. Mine has loops on the inside of the tail light housing (picture 2) where these fore/aft tensioning straps attach.

Excellent, that's what I needed; thanks! I'll have to add those loops.

Yeah, I'm a bit pissed that Exmoor sent the old style, even though their webpage says that the rear window zips out.

Mine is a factory one-not up to Exmoor quality. I was looking for a used hoop set and canvas last fall for the shorter 130 bed and Stuart @ Foleys hooked me up with all new "take offs" for 250gbp. I was surprised when it fit the ancient truck with no modification. It took Julian, Ren Ching, and I about 10 mins to install the whole setup @ night in a snow storm.

Nice! What a deal. I don't want to think about what mine cost.

I've been days installing mine. Granted, the 27 year old hoop set was perma-welded in due to corrosion (original was not galvanized) and had to be cut off then the remains drilled out. Remarkably, the old canvas was in decent shape, but nothing like a new one.
