Re: O/T Rear Deck Lid, anyone done this? Long!
I have done something similar to what you want except mine is flush with the top of the wheel wells.
I used about 1/8" steel plate, "L" brackets, long angle iron across the bottom side for stiffness, carriage bolts, and sheet metal screws.
The back door is my access point. There is a vertical plate near the front of the wheel wells.
It is strong enough to stand on, all tools are kept secure underneath, and things like highlift and airtank are bolted on top.
It is not waterproof but could have been if I wanted to go that route.
The tonnea cover fits over everything to keep the water and dust out. See the photo on the left.
