Very nice…..I am getting ready to do this too but I am going back and forth between buying the boards ready to go or cutting them myself. Great Job

Very nice. Looks like an early 60’s GM truck (Chevy / GMC). A friend of mine from high school had one, still owns that same truck all these years later. I am going to have to show him your bed re-do…

Some people use Astroturf. This oak floor has got class! What are the metal strips? Aluminum extrusions? Some you members talk about old cars…...old is when you remember when the car was new!

Nice re-do. Looks great. When I first started out in woodworking I used to make replacement boards for a Auto Body shop for trucks. Great looking truck.

looks nice. As a late-teen I built a similar bed for a ‘49 Chevy 3/4 ton p/u. 12 years later it still looks like new thanks to a nice waxing every spring and autumn.
