    I found:
    RobSport, Prestige, Rimmer, Tech Auto, Coverdale, Quiller, and East Kent. The seem to be either about 280 Pounds or 180 Pounds. Any insights on why the spread?

    None seem to be molded except maybe Quiller for double the price, which makes me wonder how to fir the seat belt latch cover.

    Of course everyone has black. I would like to get a sample of Autumn Leaf . I had what I thought was Autumn Leaf in my BGT and it was a bit orange but all black is just boring.

    Have bought & fitted carpets from various sources including a bespoke set from a local trimmer. Recall it took 4 metres but cannot recall the width. They were wool & had to be replaced because of moth larvae damage. Best value carpets were from robsport, came with the triumph logo on the rubber & fitted well. 200 I think

    Looks like the most recent "carpet" thread.
    OK, I need a set. Quite a few oare offered to my surprise. From pretty cheap to pretty expensive. (Prestige) I have to go synthetic as my wife is super allergic to wool, so that saves me a fre bucks. Anyway, I see the Prestige kit is quite a bit more expensive than the RImmer, aldridge or others. Who's kit FITS? Looks like I don't get dark brown. Not too sure about the medium offered. May have to stay black. A really dark green might be nice. Anyway. here in 2020, which kit fits the best? Some list different years and RHD vs LHD, others do not differentiate. Any actual differences?

    Thanks for the advice, I'll take some rough dimensions and see if I can work out what's required. It would be easier to buy a ready made set even if it needs fettling but I've already blown my budget for this quarter on a front spoiler! It'll be a job for later this summer unless someone has a red set that they want to sell?
    Cheers,
    Jon

    Can't advise on the square feet required, but I'd say it's a damn good idea, I chickened out and bought a pre-cut set. It was so bad and looked like it had been cut out by Stevie Wonder after a pi$$ up on pay day evening. Supplier sent a replacement, but there was so much adapting and trimming to do that I might as well have bought some nice carpet from the roll. The kits you can buy aren't steam formed in 3 dimensions, so the gain is minimal.

    Here in Munich there is a huge company which sell carpets by the metre from the original car manufacturers, so you can buy a sumptious Porsche material or what have you - maybe there's something like that in UK?

    Hi Jon
    steaming the carpets to get them to fit correctly around things like the transmission tunnel can be a real pain.
    it may be a more simple thing to get a pre- made set.
    Also edging with vinyl or wiping the edges will need a strong sewing machine. I used to have to use an industrial one even on cheap thin carpet.

    Carpet

    Hi,
    I'm thinking of making a replacement set of carpets and will probably get the carpet from Martrim. has anyone done this and can they advise how much flat carpet I'll need? I will use the old carpets as templates but will need to order the material before removing them. Any tips?
    Thanks,
    Jon
