Bullnose ideas for a deck?


So I got a whole bunch of Eon decking for free from a friend because he works for a former distributor who no longer carries the product because they went belly up.

(I know the product has some downfalls but I got 500 sq. ft. and the fasteners for free, that is more than enough to cover my 12x24 deck and it's saving me money so I am going to use it.....I've done some research and found some opinions on the product being fine if you follow the installation instructions well and use 1/4" spacing to deal with expansion issues, I'll take my chances....)

So the issue is.....

I was not able to get any of the Eon bullnose that goes with this decking, I would like any ideas on a simple way to fabricate my own, I was thinking about something along the lines of just getting PT 2x8's (deck frame is ground level 2x6), routing a 45 on one side of the top and wrapping the deck with it raised 7/8" so the top is flush with the top of the Eon decking.

Can I do this with 5/4 Azek trim?

I am trying to not use PT lumber but if I have to......

Any ideas would be great.

(I cannot rout the Eon deckboards, they are not solid.)

Thanks!

If all your trying to do is face the hollow ends you can use anything you want. Treated is cheap, Azek not so cheap or go through a different distributor and get right parts.
