Ute Tub - Tread Strips
I placed an advert in the Market section - but unfortunately nobody answered it.
My ute tub tray is missing various tread strips.
I must not be the only person that has this problem. What have others done?
I don't want to purchase a second hand tub - just for the strips!
I considered getting some made up - but that means that I would then need to replace ALL of them, and they are no longer original.
Does anybody know if I can purchase off ebay? UK?
Does anybody know a good wrecker?

Hi Grey Ghost
How much of a hurry are you in for these and do you need all the ones on the floor ?
I can go over after lunch and look in one of my 2A wrecks to see if they are worth salvaging.
If necessary, could you get them regalvanised ?

I can wait - no problem. Ideally I would like them in the next few weeks, but I am happy to wait.
At this stage I haven't been able to get them anyplace!
I need to check - but from memory I need:
1 x side length (long)
2 x floor length (long)
4 x top of boxes length (short)
I have considered:
Wire brush the strip to bare metal, and painting them.
Wire brush the strip and leave them as-is.
Wire brush the strip and regalvanise them.
Thanks for your help on this.

PS - Tassie is one of my favorite parts of Australia. I have lived/worked there in the past, even had my honeymoon there!
AFAIK they are a current part, so you can get them new.
You won't find me on: faceplant; Scipe; Infragam; LumpedIn; ShapCnat or Twitting. I'm just not that interesting.

Thanks for the info - any suggestions on who can supply them new? (I haven't had any luck finding them, but I also don't know many of the suppliers).

I'm after the same parts (and also have a wanted advert in Markets).
I've been offered a couple of complete tubs but they were too far away.
Because I need corner cappings and some other parts from the tray I'm considering looking for a parts vehicle but I'll be interested to hear how you go sourcing the new parts if you go down that route.
