Excellent source for restored running boards


Recommended Posts

Hello -

Just wanted to let folks know that there is a person out there who does *superb* work restoring old running boards. His name is Hunley Acuff, down in Georgia (706-866-4875), and he also advertises under "Services" in TWOTZ. I sent him my badly beat-up ones, one of which required substantial work on one end to get back in shape. What he sent me back are absolutely beautiful, like-new running boards. Three cheers for Hunley!

Attached is a pic that shows the front end of the boards, just to give you an idea of the detail.

$600. Yikes! But look at it this way -- it's one of the first things you see, it's labor intensive, and no one else does it. When he retires, whaddya going to do? (At least those are the arguments I used on myself.)

I'll tell you what 600 bucks is, Dale. It's another room in the house I have to paint or new flooring I have to put in <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />. You see, my wife is a firm believer in <span style="font-style: italic">quid pro quo</span> when it comes to this car stuff. Smart woman, even if her taste in men is a little dubious! <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
