I am working on a 40 Chevy coupe; the original running boards are pretty solid, but are rough. I've sandblasted and coated them with POR-15. I have read several of the older posts about various types of covering. I really don't want to put rubber back on them but, due of the roughness, I can't just paint them. I've considered welding 18 ga. steel covers over them and painting that. I've looked into Rhino Lining and that would work, except I could buy new repro boards for the cost. Line-X offers colors, but I don't know about the cost or if it can be sprayed thick enough to hide the roughness. If any of you guys have used Line-X, were you happy with it, and how did it last? I've attached a couple of pics of my boards. Any other ideas? Thanks.
