    Ute Tub - Tread Strips

    Hi All,
    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?
    Thanks,
    The Grey Ghost

    Hi,

    questions

    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 ?

    Hi Wrinklearthur,

    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.
    The Grey Ghost

    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.

    Hi Lotz-A-Landies,

    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).

    Thanks,
    The Grey Ghost!

    lrdirect.com have them, part # 330615. Also checkout part #s 304871, 330717, 308206, I don't know which ones you need and the parts manual isn't very clear.

    Grey Ghost,

    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.
