Running Board Rubber Covering


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need new running board rubber for a Buick 1927 and a Buick 1929.  Both are model 27's.

 

I was wondering what your experience was for those who have replaced the same?

 

Did both years use the same rubber?

 

I was considering product from; L & L, Bob's, and Steele.  Are there others that you would give a thumbs up to? What is your opinion on the quality and cost?

 

Thank You!

Marty

Marty, 

     I do not know all the exact details of the running board coverings and the changes for 1927.  This link should help you with some of it and how to address replacement of the wood.  I do have a few photos.  The first photo I understand to be an original 1927 Buick running board.  I doubt that is available and all you will be able to find is ribbed on the top side.  The second is labeled as 1930.    Hugh

Bob's are a reseller

Steele are a manufacturer

I thought L & L were only running board moulding makers.

 

Another place that advertises running board material is:

I needed to recover the boards on my 40 special but seeing  restored to original sets on cars at the Buick nats a few years ago I decided  I didn’t like the agricultural look. I went to Home Depot because they sell rubber mats in a wide range of patterns and I picked the one I liked.  Glued on with 3M high strength adhesive I like em.
