Need photos '36 Dodge

Recommended Posts

Since it seems that no one reproduces runningboard mats in this country anymore, at least for Dodges, so I've been toying with the idea of producing my own for my '36 Dodge. I had checked with this forum inquiring about Mr. Acuff but had no definitive response so I assume he's out of business too.  What I need are some good, close up photos of original mats so I can get an idea of the original pattern. I also need some measurements of the width of the "rounds" and the width of the grooved "lands"between them. i also need a count of the rounds and good photos of the outer edge finish and it's measurements. I have an old set of what I believe to be aftermarket Plymouth mats but they are a different size than the Dodge and I'm not sure they are patterned correctly.  No one makes any off the shelf matting that is close to the original pattern so I will have to build a model and go from there.Just at the idea stage right now. If I can get this done, these mats will cement to the original board cores like the original ones. I don't want any sprayed on over the board mats like some of the guys do. Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks  jim

Jpage, I don't have a pic but I just wanted to let you know that if you go ahead and have these made that I would like to get on your list to buy a set.. I have three metal skins that I striped to metal nice and clean the extra one is pass side if you needed one. I know it's going to take time but keep me in mind... thx

I'll see if I can get some decent pics and measurements for you tomorrow.  As you know my D2 is kind of jammed into a garage and lighting is not great.
