My chocolate brown carpet has sun bleached to a weird green in a lot of places and I want a full size spare rear carpet.

Has anyone tried these:

how do you find em? they are only down the road an all, could do with getting in touch for me as well looking for a new set of carpets for mine, if you get in touch with them ask them if the rear hatch carpet can be made to fit a standard tyre rather than a collapsable tyre,

just spoke to sales rep they do not do chocolate brown carpet only the colours on the site and you are not dealing direct with the manufacturer, they are made somewhere in Birmingham area,

I have been looking for an overmat set (not the complete carpets) in chocolate brown without any luck! Beige seems to be quite popular though.

I tried recently to die some bits of carpet I got off Phil which were not the right colour. The fabric die said it would not work on 100% nylon (I think), sure enough I ended up with a couple of lovely bits of pink capret!

I think I'd be happy with the light brown anyway, did they say they could do a fullsize spare rear carpet?

Kozzy,

I have in the past made a couple of sets for 924/ 944s as Andy says including my own car; they are probably one of the most awkward cars ever to make a set for due to the number of pieces/ area covered/ contours involved so I have avoided them since! I could make part sets or just one section if required. If you let meknow your address could send samples.

Ian
