Carpet advice

Recommended Posts

Most of the red carpet in my 1979 S1 Elite 503 is in good condition and, I think, original.  However the two front mats have been replaced at some point by a previous owner - the colour match is reasonable but the carpets are not trimmed around the edges.  Can anyone offer advice as to where I might get a good quality new pair of carpets made?

There is a company called Coverdale that were recommended to me - I have spoken to them and they sounded knowledgeable and sent me some samples, I haven't bought any carpets off them yet but I think a few people on this forum have.

Forgot about this.

I got the middle range set - Wessex wool. Quality seems good, will fit them when my car returns from its respray.

They look good let's hope they fit well.

The Wessex range were about £250ish if my memory is correct. I have the colour sample set but they do not show the overall effect.

They look the colour I have short listed, is it Autumn leaf?

Russet brown.

Cost me just over £300 in the end as I bought underlay and glue too.

Russet Brown is the exact match to my originals. It is my choice too.

£300 may bust the budget but why spoil the ship for a ha'peth of tar as the saying goes.

Please update me as to the final fit and look.
