They might get the job done, but it sure as hell looks like it'll be shitty quality. Why are there triangular pieces just sticking out on the shoulder?

Life's too short to play it safe.

Exploring roads in my 2018 Honda Civic Type R. Hopefully those roads are free of potholes :D

That's no lumber, that's OSB.  Probably placed there to, you know, sheathe the shoulder.  You're telling me the roads in Arkansas don't have subfloors?
