My name is John and I’m restoring the interior of my 1932 model 54 5 passenger sedan. I want to replace the 2 pieces of rubber on the driver floor, the Steering column floor plate and the gearshift & handbrake floor plate. Steele Rubber sells these 2 parts. Are these good reproductions? Do these mount to the floor wood, or does the carpet go down first then the rubber on top? If the rubber does mount to the floor wood, does the carpet cover any of the rubber or does it just but up to it? Any help or pictures would be of great help.
Thanks in advance
The Steele reproduction plates are of good quality. I have a set in my car, as do many of the 8’s and 12’s that you see today! I’ll send you a picture from my car via e-mail.
I can’t speak with authority on the 1932, but on 1933-34 the steering column rubber plate and those for the pedals and the gearshift-handbrake go ON TOP OF the carpet.
My 1930 ‘plates’ go on top of the carpet. Helps keep the carpet from fraying.
