I have not been able to find any rubber mats for my 52 chevy COE. Are these available or do I need to find another method for the restoration?

Check www.oldchevytrucks.com, & www.classiccoe.com, & you'll find them. I've purchased them from both places.

Is weatherstrip cement the proper way to attach the reproduction fender and step mats?

That is what I plan to use (black - not yellow).

My paint supply recommended 3M Urethane window weld to glue my pads on. I havent done it yet so I cant say howe it will work. What else has anyone been using?

As long as you guys are on the subject,how about a soure for rubber front fender step pads for a 46 COE. Spanky said there different fro 47-54 ones. My original ones were painted yellow. Was this original? Also mine were bolted on. Help!

The step pads and fender pads on my 54/55 GMC COE are attached to metal plates that are bolted on.

I going to have to think about that 3M moisture-curing urethane adhesive. It looks to be very strong. If I had confidence in the quality of the rubber pads, I'd go for it. However, if the rubber deteriorates, I'd like to be able to easily remove the rubber (3M makes a paint-safe remover for their weatherstrip cement/adhesive).

The pads on mine were originaly bolted on I`m assuming thats original. The new replacments are glue ons. So I expect to mask of and rough up the Imron paint on the fenders and glue them down. At least thats the plan for the fender mounted pad. For the step pads I cut new pad mounts out of flat 12 guage steel painted them with Imron. The plan is to bolt them down, mask off the area and then glue the pads to the plate. All sounds good in theory. I`ll know more in about a week when I start gluing.
In the meantime if anyone has and suggestions by all means speak up.

So I glued them down. Used the 3M urethaneadhesive and they havent come loose. The stuff wasnt friendly to work with at first because I over applied it. The next step tread looks better and the fender tread looks fine also.
