I got one of those cheap covers for my '55-2, only so I could store the truck at
my Dad's house while I was living in a 'Project-Unfriendly' neighborhood. My Dad
INSISTED I cover the 'eyesore' so he didn't have to see it in his way all the
time! Anyway, every time I moved the cover, I would get inCREDible static shocks
from it!!!! I ended up driving a rod into the soil at the back end of the truck
and I ran a wire from the rear bumper to the rod to ground the static charge!
Maybe a more expensive cover won't have the electrical properties that my cheap
cover had!  Otherwise, remember to ground IT before IT grounds YOU!
