Rubber floor mat
Getting ready to do seats and floor covering in my 51 super six convertible. Is anyone reproducing the rubber mat for at least the front or am i buying carpet? The fron is history but the rear is still good.
Wildrick Rubber has a "Hudson Built Steel Body" imprinted front mat. To the best of my knowledge it can be trimmed to fit anything from the 1930's (or maybe earlier) through the StepDown years. I think it's based on a universal replacement mat that Hudson made available, though it is not an exact replica of the StepDown "factory" mat.
If this works or you find another solution please post with an update. The rubber floor mat on my 1951 Super 6 Sedan has rotted away as well.
A proper-fitting mat will have to have an access flap over the plate that allows access to the master cylinder.

Here's Wildrick's mat.
