I am restoring a 1931 8.98 Cabriolet and wondered if any of you can provide me with a method for removing old running board rubber. I've read numerous methods on the internet but no one can seem to agree on a good method. I have no doubt I am in for some fun. Thanks in advance. Pete Wright

I think aircraft paint remover will remove it one layer at a time

Done this many times. Put a rosebud tip on your oxy-acetylene torch . Heat about 1/4 of the backside at a time. Scrape it off with a three inch
putty knife. It will take you about a 1/2 hour.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
Be of Good Cheer

Curt's method is the best. It took me 10 minutes to do two runningboards by heating the underside first with a torch.

Watch the temp of your torch as you can warp the metal. R
