2005 Interstate Rubber for running boards

Just finished painting the fiberglass running boards..Need to find a source for the rubber that covers the running boards. Three places. Passenger and drivers side. Also at the sliding door. A local dealer gave me a part number of 203456-100 for a three piece set with a cost of $447.53.
Seems crazy for two 6" by 10" rubber matting and one 8" by 48".

Any ideas!!!

If you are talking about the anti-skid tread material, I replaced ours with skateboard deck material. I just went to the local skateboard shop and bought enough material for both the driver's and passengers running board step. Now I can say "Whoa dude they are awesome".

A bit off your original question, but did you re-coat just the top surfaces, or did you also coat the undersides, and if so, with what product?

That's on my longer-term to-do list because it's just raw exposed fiberglass under there, and I thought that it might help preserve the structural integrity if it had a protective coating.

If you painted them, I'm also wondering if you dismounted them from the vehicle, which is a notion that does not sit well with my husband who fears that dismounting might disrupt the overall fit quality. I'd love to see pics of your work.

Painting over gelcoat is easy enough, if done properly. Painting over the back side of fiberglass, especially fiberglass containing chopped-strand mat as opposed to the much better biaxial or triaxial cloth mat, is a lot more difficult.

Probably the best stuff to use on exposed glass mat for complete coverage as well as durability is truck spray-in bed liner material. Available in a variety of colors, but since it's under the van where only you and your mechanic will ever see, black works as well as anything.

I second the skateboard tape idea.
That $447 piece would eventually come unglued and fall off going down the highway.
Those pieces are missing from our friend's 2004 Interstate.
In my mind I think the running boards/fender flares are likely identical to yours.

I bought some anti-slip tape in 4" width from local big box hardware store. I used in to add some treads on the top surface of my rear bumper cover.
