    Default New Carpet for a R12 - Which Carpet Supplier is Best?

    I am looking for a carpet for a 12, and there are two places advertising on e-Bay: All Car Carpets for $140, and Knox Auto Carpets for $130, does anyone have any experience with these, and if one is better, or can anyone recommend any other suppliers that can do a 12 carpet (preferably in Melbourne).

    Thanks.

    I have bought carpet from both of these places.
    They are both good.
    That car origionally had a caramel colour. Somthing like the pallamino they have.

    Default 12 Wagon

    I will post some photos as I go along - at the moment I am still gathering the bits I need and I haven't had a chance to do much else.

    More to come soon.

    Default R12 Carpet

    I used Knox Auto last year for my R12 and delivery was fast and its carpet is good,
    the fit around the gear shift area could be better though

    Hi Did you have the black plastic thing fitterd around the bottom of the gear stick?
    I think they based there mould on a later car with this fitted. The early ones didnt have it.
    The carpet fits well with the plastic peice fitted.
    I threw one in the wagon for you.
