new carpet set

Postby moggiethouable » Mon Oct 01, 2018 5:17 pm

Hi all, I have just fitted a new carpet set to Doris, I am about to take off the gearbox gaiter and cover plate in order to fit the carpet underneath it to get a tidy job as the carpet in question came without trim around the gearbox hole, this is the norm apparently?
Anyway the carpet I took out had a slot and trim a bit like the handbrake carpet, the new one doesnt.
Does anyone have photos perhaps of their own installation?
Just to get ideas of the neatest finish.
Thanks.

the carpet will be trapped under \ covered by the metal cover plate so it will look neat..
these pictures are from a carpet set i made up..
the first picture shows what it looks like before the cover goes on, the second with it in place.. before anyone asks i did trim it back a bit further before putting the cover on..

Well I did that and it does look rather swish though I say so myself, downloading photos on this website however has over the years become no easier, I shall persist however.

looks nice.. does the surround match the colour of your car? or is that the carpet.. i used old english white to match the grill etc.

Indeed the surround matches the colour of the car, as the dashboard and doors internally are also smoke grey blue I thought that would be in keeping.
