Truck Bed Rails
I'm not into woodworking sorry to say but I need some help with the following. I just bought a 1981 Ford F100 which is in my profile picture. I will be doing some body work and new paint job this spring and would like to do something with the two wooden items on the truck. The floor in the back of the truck is in good shape so I'm going to sand it down and recoat it but I'm not sure what would be the best product to stand-up to the outdoor weather? Also I would like to build some new racks for the truck bed but again not sure what would be the best type of wood to use. I would be real grateful for any advice and any internet sites you may know that could give me some idea's on the rack design.
Thank You Doug
