We have a 1955.2 3600 stepside longbed truck.


Can someone please tell us what the bed wood thickness is supposed to be?
Thank you.
Brian

Just to further explain.


I have quite a bit of Apitong deckboards from military tri axle flatbeds that i bought theu an online auction.

They are shiplapped and 7” wide by 39’ long .... some are 10’ long.

But they are 1.5” thick.

Thought I would use a planer at buddies woodworking ahop and plane em down to 3/4” ...??

If anyone is onterested in these boards... contact me....they have been used for about 5 months on traer.... so they DO have holes in em. 😔🤷‍♂️.

Brian

You can purchase plug holes cutters. These will cut a plug to fill those holes using polyurethane glue.
