Hello to all.. Just decided copying back would be an easy way to get this out there and see what you folks think.... You may remember a while back I sent out a question about the wood like material on the top of my running boards.. Several of you indicated it might be possible to simply flip it over and re use it.. I was hopeful that I would in fact be able to do that. Sadly while the flip side of mine does actually look fairly decent, it is very brittle and cracks easily.. No way I will be able to make it work on the car.. I have saved them between some flat pieces in a climate controlled area as I do believe they will serve as excellent patterns to use for the replacement material.. Thus my main question at this point, do you folks have any additional suggestions as to the best option for replacement.. I was struck by how different the flip side color is than what mine showed on top. Obviously to be expected after all these years.. The flip side of mine is a beautiful much darker and heavily red tinted color, almost like a cherry wood or something to that effect.. I really want to get as close to it as I can

harley: My attempt at creating a thread with an attachment of the Royale stationary does not seem to allow the attachment to open for view. What did I not do correctly? This is my first time on a forum so it is all new to me. (Harley)
