Has anyone purchased the wool twist carpets from BAS??? Wondering if their dove grey is a close reproduction for the early cars with Dove grey fitted.
Also, what about their red carpet....anyone have experience with that? Perhaps there is a better source...suggestions appreciated. This is for my 64 cars.

There was a rather longish thread on the bas carpets. I thought I bookmarked it, but, seems I didn’t. I recall the consensus was that they were well done.

Just want to ask again....anyone sourced a supply of the wool twist carpets for the pre 65 cars (not their Veltone) ...that is what I am mostly interested in.

The BAS "Heritage" grey carpet is a good quality carpet that is a fair colour match for original pile grey carpet but is thicker & of much better quality.

Is that the C106 (Grey) or the C120 (Dove Grey) Mark? They look very similar in the images on their website.

TBH, I don't know, it was a long time ago. Probably best to ask for a sample of both.
