Anyone have experience of longevity of this stuff compared to the rubber?

How much did the three pads run you?

That's the beauty of this stuff. It's meant to stick on surfboards (fiberglass) with repeated abuse and never peel up. It simply will not peel up unless you want it to and then it peels off in one nice sheet and leaves little residue. The 3M stick pad installed on the back is the best in the business.

I'm surprised that UV doesn't tear it up like the oem rubber pads.

Thanks for posting this project. How are the pads holding up after a few years? Has the adhesive on the back continued to work well?

Also, what did you use to cut the mats? I would like to do the same thing but want to make sure the edges are even and smooth.

Thanks,

Mark

I did this project on two tandem axle trailers last spring and both have held up very well so far. Not that it's been that long but both do sit outside all summer long.

Getting the pads to look and fit correctly using a razor knife and a straight edge can be challenging and getting the radius' to look OEM is even harder. With this in mind I started making templates for the 2 the MC trailers I did last year and was going to start cutting pad sets out on our Waterjet. This would make doing this project much easier and a true DYI project for most anyone.

Really didn't get any feedback when I asked if anyone would be interested in set for their trailers so the project went to the back burner. Based on how the pads were falling apart on my 07 trailer I really thought there would be more interest but there I go thinking again.

B - I would be interested in something. I have an 03 tandem trailer.

What are you looking at for cost?

Depends on how many we're cutting and the material cost. If we stick with one pattern/color we can get one and possible 2 sets out of a single sheet. The issue with the material that I purchased for the two I did last year was that the 3M glue didn't cover the entire sheet. I also had issues planing the layout as I did those by hand. Being able to cad it up and fit the pieces to best utilized the material would help a lot.

I'll make a call today to see where we got with the patterns. If we actually got them in cad form I can make a couple calls to see about material costs. I'll also have to take some pictures of the the two trailers to see if yours is one of those. If it is we should be golden. If not then I'd need the old set to make a pattern.
