Material for top of floorboard?
I finished up a set of floorboards this weekend and was trying to find a good material to put on top for both comfort and slip resistance. Any suggestions?
As for the floorboards, I'll post some pictures soon, but here's basically what I did. I had a piece of 1/4" steel plate laying around, so I cut out the boards with an angle grinder and cutoff wheel. They are basically the same shape as KM's, but I didn't take any measurements or anything...just kind of eyeballed a good shape. I decided not to put a bolt through the top and nut on the bottom. Instead, I drilled and tapped the holes. Yes, this was a big pain in the rear with 1/4" steel and I did break two taps in the process, but it got done eventually. Then I sanded down the boards, primed them and gave them two coats of black Rustoleum. Finally, I bolted them on with some loctite.
I rode to work on them today and it was NICE. I definitely need something to put on top of them, though.
