I am enjoying your build! I just started a '40 Chrysler Deluxe coupe. Installed a '54 331 hemi, 200R4 tranny. Chassis is pretty well along, haven't started any sheet metal work. Question; I would like to have some sort of rubber covered running boards. Painted are hi-maintenance. Steele nor Metro make repro covers. Does anyone have a solution for this? One thought is to body work the sides of the boards and put flat rubber covers on top only.
