I have a 1940 120 sedan. When I had it restored a few years ago running board rubber for this model was not available from Steele or anyone else. I solved the problem by having the running boards sprayed with Rhino Lining which is usually used for pickup truck beds. The boards look great and have a rubber "feel" to them. They are virtually indestructible. The cost was less than $100. The ridges in the boards were maintained and look correct.

JP, where your running boards stripped prior to the rhino coating? Can you post pictures?

This summer we had the running boards of our 1940 110 sprayed with Rhino lining and they look great and are extremely well detailed. We had the color tinted to a satin finish which really looks like rubber. The cost was $135.00. They were sand blasted before the Rhino lining was applied cost $60.00.
Unless you were building an absolutely correct car this is a great alternative.
My opinion only, but have received many compliments at local shows.
John

Yes, I scraped off the bits and pieces of rubber and then sanded the metal boards. I then spray painted the undersides before going to the Rhino Lining place which I believe was in Lexington, NC. Sorry, I have no pics to post. The previous thread tells the same story. Its not show perfect, but for a driver, Rhino is the answer. I live in Winston-Salem if you want to see the car. John
