The rubber on my running boards has dried up and needs replacing. Anyone know where to get new ones? I've searched the sites of the vendors and builders but can't find anything.

Ideas?

Thanks, Jim

I used Home Depot stair tread material.  It comes in lengths up to 50”.  A couple of 3’ or 4’ pieces should do and cost a lot less than a vinyl hall runner, plus the stair tread will lie flat while the hall runner stuff comes in a roll and likes to stay in a roll.      The finished lip seems perfect for the outside of the car threshold and forms a nice, neat finished look.
I’m just about to get another stair tread to use next to my foot by the dead pedal, too.  (Hint:  You can also reshape it slightly with a heat gun).

Were you ever a member of the Corvair Club of America and or attend any of the Corvair guys driving events. I have had Corvair powered cars on many race tracks across the country with this group. I think I posted a pic of the 900 lb. 250HP Corvair powered vintage Formula Atlantic open wheel race car? Man I was young in that pic. The car was a rocket.

My Fiberfab Speedster has a sand paper type material like skateboarders use on their boards.  Does anyone else have this on their Speedster?

Dr, Scholl or Danny who rides bare feet must of owned that car at some point and used the running board for a pedicure.  

Here is mine it is flat piece of vinyl like material cut to fit the space and a bit over from the edge of the final lip.
