1928 Packard 526 Running Board Mat Replacement


Recommended Posts

I am replacing the running board mat on my 526 sedan. I have found the top material from Restoration Supply but am looking for the material under the mat. From the attached photo it looks like a burlap material. Does anybody have a source for this original material or is there a more modern material that will work better?

Any experience/help will be appreciated.

I am replacing the running board mat on my 1928 Packard 526 Sedan.  I have found the mat material from Restoration Supply matches what I have there now.  But I need to get the material that goes under the matting.  From the attached photo it looks to be a burlap type material.  Does anybody know a source of this material or is another more modern material used?

Any help will be appreciated.

The burlap was on the backing of the linoleum when made - forego the thick burlap - you do not want it as it can cause flexing and prematurely limit live of the matting you purchased (plus holds water)
