Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside BILLYBOB

Just had a call from Ian "FrankenHealey about some Teak planks he offered me over two years ago, as he knew I love wood, re-using etc.

I had decided that if I was going to go the wooden floor route for the truck, which currently has marine ply floors, then 60 year old Teak boards from a Bedford Green Goddess Fire tender, LINK HERE: http://retrorides.proboards.com/thread/84662?page=1 would be a pretty cool way to go.

Here are some pics of the donor:









Currently looks like this...... with the race car it will be transporting in the foreground..... not that you would miss it.






Over the next weekend or so, Ian will be photographing the teak planks he has, and then I will decide if I am up for a rather large job of making them into a floor for the truck.


Once cut and planed you should have something like this.



This is what finished Teak should look like.



And a reclaimed Teak garden table.




So..... what is the general consensus?

The planks are about 240km from here.
