Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: From floor mat

Hey all, I'm looking for a front floor mat for my runabout. The boards keep sliding up ever so often and it makes it really dangerous to drive. If anyone has a used one they can sell me please let me know. It doesn't need to be perfect just heavy. Thank you in advance.

Cut one out of an old truck mud flap.They stay put and floor boards do too.

New ones aren't that expensive and they "Scuff up" quickly :-)

If you replace the floor boards with tongue and groove it will stop that. Then the floor mat will help with some of the hot air coming from the engine.

My floor boards have two 3/16", or so, wood pins that align the two upper boards. Seems to keep them in place fine. Pins in the lower board and holes in the upper board.

If you have original floorboards, sometimes they can be loose side-to-side due to shrinkage or other factors.

You can take out the slop and make them tighter by tacking a wood shim on one or both ends (right and left ends) of the floorboards. This can also alleviate rattling floorboards. Popsicle sticks work great for shims - you can purchase them at the local craft store such as Michael's.

Also - in Ted Aschman's Tinkerin' Tips, he suggests using bowtie window screen clips to hold down unruly floorboards. You screw the clip to the riser. Once the floorboard is in place, twist the clip.
