Running Boards and Splash Shields

The restoration of running boards and splash shields is finished. The right hand running board had been replaced sometimes in the past through some gas tank, most probably a part of the wood gas generator. The running boards were very rusty, so we bought two other ones, also very rusty. But we suceeded in combining the four into two good ones. These are the early 1930 ones with the splash shields connected to the running boards. I still have no idea how to get the zink trim, as the reproduced parts do not fit the one piece running boards. As an interim solution I put some bolts in.
