    GREAT looking roadster. Perfect mat but I'd like black and still looking for 1. I found the tan one but...........
     
  2. I thought they came in black but see now that they don't. Give Joe's Antique Auto in MA. a call. Joe would know if available. Great guy! 508 278-3980

    I will Thanks. What did you put under your mat? Just the sound deadener?
     
  4. Nothing! What about checking the dimensions of a 34 mat that is made in black. You may be able to work with it. I am not sure of the difference. Just a thought.

    The Deuce roadster built for Jim Farley had a ribbed rubber floor that went in different directions. Across the tunnel but front to back on the sides. The lines gave a defined look to the rubber floor adding another dimension exercise to the party. Can't find it in an image search but it was in TRJ last year (?).

  14. Here are some pix of interiors with rubber matted floors that I've saved.
    They all seem to have a very serious race-car/industrial feel, dontcha think?

    Hope this helps:

    Put the rubber mat on the flat parts of the floor and toe boards, and paint the exposed trans tunnel. If your trans tunnel looks good, you don't have to cover it.

    A lot of the old cars had jute stuck to the rubber mats for sound deader. The rubber we put in the COPO cars at the factory had rubber and jute. ( Taxis and Police units)

  19. I went to Rubber Cal (someone here posted the link above) and found exactly what I was looking for. It's 100% recycled rubber and has an old school textured look. I needed a piece 4X5 and will split in half to do both sides of truck. $30.00 plus $20.00 S&H. So for $50 bucks I got what I needed. Since I didn't have a bed liner laying around this was the next best thing. I will post pics before and after as soon as it's done. Below is the link.

    How did they get the rubber to conform so nicely to the trans tunnel, etc.
