New Carpet
« on: August 16, 2014, 08:34:30 AM »
I googled them....

Found a few places that sell them new.

Was wondering if other have bought new & what did you get.

Price. Quality. Fit. etc

All my cars are 72s

Also, what is the same or closest to OEM ?
Looking at this site it shows a number of different "cuts".
I have no idea what is like OEM !

if you are looking for an oem look, the loop is the one you want.

The question is whether vendors do the contouring over the spare for the Runabout. Local carpet shops have had a hard time with that.

no they don't the carpet I got did not have that contouring for the spare. I did however cut it large enough so that over time it would do that. and it did.

I solved the need for the lump going over the spare. I got an aluminum spare rim from a Mustang & installed a 165/80/15 tire on it & it will sit in the well with flat carpet.
