Did plywood with spar varnish also; it really looked nice.

Pergo is a imitation laminate floor.

Formica makes one which has a better moisture warranty.

Both come in many wood-like finishes. I use a set of Formica samples in
my tile store to replicate cabinet finishes when customers are selecting
ceramic tile. Costs about 3 to 4 dollars a sq.ft. or so.

Loose Hood:
My hood on my 53 pops up in the back nearly 3 inches.
I have removed and cleaned the hinges, installed new springs and adjusted them as
best I could.
Anyone know of a good fix?
Are the "rebuilt" hinges worth buying?

I might recommend (unless yours is a restoration) a reverse-tilt kit. I've
had mine on my daily-driver '56 for about 6 mos, and love it. No problems,
easy open and close, and amazing engine access. No more bruises on the back
of my head! Got mine (a No Limit kit) thru Sacto Vintage. Good luck!

How about using a sheet of 1/2 inch cdx plywood covered by a sheet of 1/4
oak cabinet grade plywood glued to it, with stainless strips and a stainless
end strip. Bet you couldn't tell the difference from the oak planks unless
you looked underneath. That sounds like a good idea for my 55.

That sounds good and is probably cheaper than Pergo or Formica. I tried
that once(I don't know if it was cabinet grade, Home Depot). It looked good
until I was at a show with a little rain, dried the truck and put the wet
towel on the truck bed and forgot it. I have a bed cover. That was it for
the plywood, big stain. If I had half a brain the plywood would still be on
the truck.

Sorry Guy's
Nothing looks as good as Red Oak boards, stained natural and then 10 coats of
Polyurethane. Less work than plywood, looks original and looks best. The
stainless steel strips make the finishing touch. If the truck is being
restored to original you must use black painted strips. That's my opinion.
