Floor covering



Im a bit stuck on what to cover the floor with, as to get a carpet set sent over from the states is out of my budget. What have you guys been using?
The truck is an old farm truck and will be kept that way.

I plan on using lizard skin but donít like the rough bed liner look so Iíve seen people use this silk sand or something like that to go over then sand it down and I plan on going with a white epoxy as the topcoat.

the rubber looks cool, is that a flat sheet or made for the truck?

You know, I don't know if the rubber is formed or flat-my truck came that way. I didn't install it. It would seem to me that a flat sheet would work, though. There isn't a tall transmission tunnel to have to form it around. I bet it would lay pretty good,be easy to trim and and readily available. If it does't work, then there's plan 'carpet'! Good luck!

Plenty of suppliers over your side of the pond, but postage/import charges cost more than the parts.

Dumpster dive behind carpet stores?

Indoor-outdoor carpet found in a dumpster. I borrowed the carpet out of my friend's truck as a pattern. It didn't conform perfectly to the floor, but it made the cab a nicer place to be, hid various rust holes, and could be swept clean if necessary.
