    I'm just finishing up a 1953 GM [​IMG]COE hot rod project and I'm trying to find a source for rubber treads to go on my fenders. Any thoughts of sources?

  2. I'm wondering if the running board cover material is something you could use? I haven't seen the real deal offered but I may've missed it too

    Might be a bit off-beat to find on a shelf.

    I am not sure what you have out your way for services, but out here, a quick trip to the rubber supplier, and a drop off at the water jet cutter, and you can have any shape you want.

  5. The problem with using flat material is that the COE fender guard is a compound curved surface. The picture OP showed may look like it is flat, but it is not. I had a 51 GMC COE for a while, and know the problem. I did not get around to solving that new rubber before I sold it.
