Running board covers

OK, before you say it - don't yell at me - I posted this on another site as well but the response has NOT been eardrum shattering !!

I just received my running board covers and SS trim for my '31A roadster. The boards and covers are identical for both the '30 and the '31 so I decided to use the SS version of the trim from a 1930 instead so I could eliminate the welting. The trim does not fit over the cover and somewhere I had read that the outer edges of the pyramid embossing had to be routered off for it to fit correctly but can't find that information again. Can anyone confirm this? Has anyone done this successfully? How? With a router jig? I have big and even bigger routers so not a problem with a tool.

Another question, these are self-stick covers but Macs and LeBarron-Bonney suggest using cement as well. Has anyone had experience with applying contact cement over the self stick tape they use or is there a better version of a contact type cement I can use - the usual stuff is real good for counter tops. Where to buy it as well? Other suggestions?

And no, I wont promise that I wont do it again even if you shove bamboo slivers under my finger nails.


(As always, thanks)
