Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have suggestions on where I can get replacement rubber grip for a Fairlady Z foot rest?

 

This is what I'm talking about.

The rubber ribbed piece that sits along the top edge of the tubing. Mine is missing the rubber and I went to Clarke Rubber but they didn't have anything really suitable. So I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has any ideas?

Maybe a cricket bat grip could work?

I had a look for this when cleaning up my interior.
Couldn't find anything , I didn't look that hard, so just sanded it back then painted it satin black.

If you find anything that looks the part, I would be in for a length as well.

Cheers

Used some split heater hose on my mine back in the day, with a couple of cable ties to hold it in place..

Thanks mate, I considered that option of buying flat material and wrapping / glueing it, but wasn't sure how durable the glue would be. Any suggestions on a type of adhesive that would work?

Hi Gav

I reckon contact adheasive should do it, so long as the join as placed so as not to get heavy traffic.
Will be holding it in place to dry with either cable ties or masking tape.
That is what I will be trying anyway.

Cheers

Sikaflex might work.
