Where do I find Strips for Running Boards

Last night, I saw a 1946 Jaguar that had 3 strips on each running board. They were approx. an inch wide each and 4 feet in length. The rubber in the middle of each one was surrounded by a stainless steel molding. They were awsome looking, and Lord knows, I already have some sratches on my boards. The day I finally got to drive it for the first time, my lab decided she would greet my by sliding her paws across them. At least these strips would protect them, but yet let that Black Cherry H.O.K. paint job shine through!!

Also look in stores catering to the boating crowd.

Great Info

Hey guys,
Thank you for the very helpful info. I wish that I would have known about that flex chrome before I put my old stainless trim back on my car. Oh well, I guess I can pop the old off and replace it with the new. I also checked out advance and the have the body side molding. I found some moldings at www.sportwing.com as well. I wish I would have known about this site while I was building my 1938 Dodge street rod!! Better go now. Thanks again, Kyle

Street Rod Running Board Strips - Stainless

I can send you some photos or post pictures of a set I made for my father-in-law this summer.

It's on a '38 Chevy 2-Dr Sedan ( magazine car ).
They're custom machined solid stainless steel, bolt-on & sweet !!

Look great on smooth painted running boards.

I've made several sets over the years to protect paint jobs from those nasty kids that are just too darn quick to catch jumping-up to sneak-a-peek inside your ride !!

Getting scratches on smooth painted running boards or door sills is a common problem. I started custom machining stainless steel trim strips for street rods projects of my own / family a few years ago. ************************************************** ******************

*Chev's of the 40's / Streetrod Headquarters* added Custom Running Board Trim Strips on their website per the recent holiday sales flyer / mailer.
I believe those are the ones shown on the *Hot Rod Metal* website ??
( Both companies are located in Washington State )
