Last ditch effort...

Post by 360gts »

I have received a number of carpet samples from UK suppliers....greys...lots of greys....I am trying to decide which is going to be closest to the grey wool that was fitted to Pre Veltone Coopers etc.(Pre 65)
Was hoping someone out there still had an old piece of a bulkhead carpet that we could use to establish a close color.
Anyone with such a rare item??? Seems like it is even more rare than NOS gold brocade !!!!

Hi Iain...well spotted!
That does look like it has the original grey wool carpets.....small area of the carpet is exposed in some of the pictures....looks like it might be the same color as the dark grey portion of the seats.
Wish I lived over there....would view the car and get a good 'hands on' look.

Are there any Forum members in Perth that could look at this car and give us an opinion on the carpet???
