Default Accra Running Boards

May well be out of production, I can't find any, but anybody know where I can get a set from? I prefer these to the other style of running boards.

I tried finding these for you using my internet search superpowers. But it was of no avail. I cannot find a set of these specific running boards for sale anywhere.

I like them as they mould nicely to the body work. I see loads of cars online with them on, but no clue where to get them.

It's likely one of those cool aftermarket accessories that were produced back when the PT Cruiser was all the rage. But now it's no longer made. You will likely have to keep waiting until a used set comes up for sale or settle for the one brand that still seems to be available. And if you want those, you should likely grab them fast.

I believe about 80% of the aftermarket stuff once made for the PT is not longer available. And much of the stuff that is still available is just left over stock. I went through this last year trying to find a new set of the TYC "Elegant" backup lights. They used to be common, but even websites that still list them can't actually get them. Eventually, Bubba_1952 found a nice used set for me. You can see them in this photo.

what about these instead? i like them better as the ones you posted look kind of bulky and poorly designed at the ends. like they just decided to stick big chunks of plastic on the ends.

I did look at those, but they seem to really stick out quite far. Further than most and i am not entirely sure on legality here in the UK. They are so picky here it disgusts me at times haha. Can't even have an embossed metal number plate.

Also, they cost a bomb.

I got mine in 2012 from runningboardwarehouse.com (which no longer exists).
The only other info I have is an email address - accravacjake@yahoo.com - Jake Stephenson. My last contact was in 2012, but figured it might help you.

Good luck...only one's I'm seeing are the E&G...

Perhaps try simply looking at running boards for other vehicles other then PT specific. In the 70's and 80's many were modified and used on none specific vehicles. The wheel base of the PT Cruiser is common so I am sure that you could find something that could be modified to work and look made for PT when finished..

Is this one we think an E&G running board? Looks kinda alright on a silver car.

As to making my own, I would love to, but to be honest, I know my limits too, and know when it comes to things like that, it would come out like a wreck. So a pre made one for me is key.
