I have a test piece working. 2 coats so far. Looks nice. 2nd coat stayed oily (a little bit on finger fips) after a few days. I have it in the sun since. I plan to put another coat on. I will bring the piece to homecoming.

Bill,
After talking to a few people, I used linseed oil. I was told to apply it as needed when boards looked dry. I think it looks good!

Thanks Chris. Definitely an option.
HB, did you add stain to it?

Considering I'm not allowed to restore this truck, both of these are options for the bed! grin
