Thanks for the pic. Unfortunately, the toe rail is convex, so the tread needs to be curved along its length.
I also have chafe protection, but they are only about a half inch wide and a foot long and sit atop the toe rail's highest point. I've thought about putting a few of them parallel to each other, where the foot tread needs to be, but think it may look bad.
The idea of a tread came to me because a friends has a Taswell will a gorgeous brass thread at the lifegate, but its OEM.
