    Renault dashmats

    Does anyone know where to buy a dashmat for the Renault 19? I have tried everywhere and no place sells them. All the auto shops in sydney have not stocked any mats for french cars.
    Does anyone know where to go to get one?

    I doubt very much that you would be able to buy a prefab mat for a 19 considering that the numbers sold would be very few. Given the angular design of the 19 dash, take the car to an auto trimmer who should be able to tailor one to suit the car.

    It doesn't surprise me that there are no prefab dash mats for a 19, any manufacturer would likely go broke tooling up for one! Given the angular shape of the 19 dash, take the car to an auto trimmer who should be able to tailor a carpet mat to suit.

    Come on Simon, they probably have one or two there for your Gordini..valuable things dash mats.

    Would go well with the custom made 8G fluffy dice which I'm also sure are out there on the net somewhere...if not there is a great market niche left vacant.

    It is fairly amazing what you find about the place..why anyone would have stocked the the things in the first place is a bit of a mystery in itself...it's not like there was ever going to be a big market for them.

    But there ya go....doof doof

    Sorry Daniel, I think you must have confused me with someone who gives a toss when it comes to 19 dashmats.

    My original reply was quite sincere, and isn't it good how you can just go to Rocca Bros/ Marlows and buy one. But as I don't own a 19 I won't be making the trip. However, now that I do know I'll be able to offer it as a suggestion of where to buy one when someone enquires in the future.
