    Would have originally been pine. Nice and cheap for a farm truck. Reclaim floorboards would look good

    I used 8" fencing gravel boards, took a flame gun to them burnt them till they looked like charcoal, wire brushed them, then gave them a good going over with a brillo pad, then i protected them with bees wax, i am very pleased with the aged look, sorry i cant post pictures on here,
