Tell the wife she has good ideas!😁  looks good and stout too.
My friend that died from cancer here while back, made a lot of stuff like that. She started finishing the would with a small propane torch. The out door stuff held up real good. She built me a spare toilet paper holder for my bathroom and did the same with the torch. Just throwing that out there for ideas😁

Creative lady. Looks real nice, and the torch idea might be the thing to "weather" it.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Home schooling my grandkids gets in the way of finishing my car

I like that finish with the red tailgate. Whitewash would look good with a blue or green tailgate.....my two cents ::)

Mike...distilled white vinegar...clean steel wool with soap and water to remove any oil that may be there...heat vinegar in 12 ounce mason jar(I microwaved it)...then shred one steel wool pad...cut into short 3/4"  pieces  into vinegar. ...let set overnight partial covered with lid.. Then add 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide.....then use as you like....

lmao, that's the SWEET AND SOUR recipe used to age wood for model railroads.

I tried it and did not like it.  Smell . 

 I used 99% pure isopropinal rubbing alcohol with USMC BLACK...FIEBINGS LEATHER DYE, 2 ink squirters full to 4 oz bottle.

Ages basswood to a nicely silvery weathered colour.

FATnLOW, You could use two tail gates. One for the back and one on the front. Then hinge them to make a recliner. You could position them with tail gate chains or some cool hot rod contraption using E-brake handles and shaft levers.  :D

They look really good. I guess all the Chevy pickups are still using their tailgates.  ::)
