Trim for Wood Plank Flooring

I have installed wood plank flooring in my 1976 Argosy. I am unsure what to use and how to instill the trim. What did you use? Or any ideas? Because of the shape I would think a trim that is bigger on the bottom than the top would have to be used. Has anyone used aluminum?

Cove moulding (aluminum) you can get it or order it thru any hardware store. Quarter round at the same store for wood or synthetic....they have refinished and its worth it to use it. I fasten it with Vulcum....planning for future work.

Lots of options. With the right tools you can easily attach wood moulding. Pictures of your project-in-process would most likely garner some good suggestions.

I would think Vulcum is a bit too permanent. Once cured it has to be scraped off. If I were doing it and wanted to use a caulking as glue I would use Mono or any acrylic (not silicone...same problem) The acrylic or modified acrylic polymers used for calking windows and siding can be cleaned off with Varsol down the road. You will still need to shoot a few nails to hold the trim in place, so why not just nail the trim and make it easier and simple.
