    wooden floor for truck

    Hey Gang!! I was kicking around the idea of installing a wood floor in my 07 Volvo. Any tips, advice or helpful hints would be much appreciated.
    I just thought I'd do something different. I think a wood floor would be sharp with a couple of rugs. My main concern is how to install: Do I nail the wooden floor tiles directly to the truck floor or should I use a piece of plywood first then place the wood floor on that? Do I nail, glue or velcrove the floor tiles? Do I bolt down the plywood to the truck floor and place the wooden tiles on it ?
    Like I mentioned, just a thought to install it!!

    If you do it yourself, use a flooring like Pergo, better than wood and is a floating system. I would put Dynamat under it for noise and insulation. You don't want a hot floor.
    Try this article http://www.customrigsmag.com/laminat...floor-install/
