I just picked up a "55 Ford f100 street rod from Monogram.  
I want to build it like the pickup my dad had back in the late 50's.  Fun truck, I learned to drive with it, granted I was only 12!
So the help I am looking for is my dad's truck had a Oak floor in the bed with metal strips holding it all together.  
Does anyone have any suggestions what to use for the wood bed.  It is a solid plastic one from the box.  
Any help or ideas with this I would greatly appreciate.

Thanks so much for replying and leading me to these posts.  There are so many great ideas that I now have a huge pile of info so that I can continue building this PU.  Donn Yost gave me some pretty nifty ideas also.  Plenty of useful information, now I just need to do it!  
This forum has been allot of help in all aspects of model building.  Thanks to all!
