Aluminum Strip with Rubber Insert

I'm looking for a source for the subject item. I'm looking to install these aluminum strips with rubber inserts on my running boards for protection after painting.

So far I've only been able to find them in the UK. See the following link which has a diagram.
http://classic-auto-parts.co.uk/part.phtml?PartID=827

Was wondering if anyone knew of a stateside vendor for similar items???

Years ago there was universal side moulding kits that were of that design. They were cut to length and were pop riveted on. Try doing a search under side moulding kit.

I do not know what vehicle you are building, but mid-fifty ford parts sells them for our fords.

http://www.midfifty.com/

They are called "Custom runner kits". They come in black and several other colors.

They look really good on the trucks. I have seen them after installation.

I am just installing the "ford" step plates on mine.

Also, you might want to search the marine industry for rub rails and similar, and I bet you could find them in stainless. http://www.mysticmarinediscounts.com/hardware-rub-rail---moulding.html

re: Aluminum Strip with Rubber Insert

Thanx Baddbob and all. Exactly what I'm looking for. By the way I'm looking to install on my 1936 Chevy running boards for protection.

Check out my project journal for details.
