Re: Who makes the best moulded car carpets?

ANTHONY,

I have bought mine from Tru-Fit in Dandenong and they fit fine, leave them in the sun for a while to soften before installing and much easier to work with. A few friends have got them from there as well with no compalints. I went past the factory last week that they were in in Cheltenham road and saw they have moved but not sure where.

Definitely Tru-fit mate, they also have the best prices easily, from memory they are $105 for loop, $118 for plush and $135 for super plush. If you look at other places they're almost twice as expensive, plus they have a store in coburg as well.

Knox Auto Carpets do front and rear plush pile for $125 or $150 delivered. Loop pile is $115 or $140 delivered. They have something called "Super Plush" and that's $160, and they also have "XTreme" for $200. Under felt is $30 front and rear, sound insulation felt is $90 front and rear, and you can buy extra carpet by the metre for parcel shelves and stuff, and they make boot carpets.

you must own the shop do you ....

i cant remember if it was Knox or Tru Fit that made the carpets in my XB , i bought them at the summernatts about 13 / 14 years ago and they are still looking great, no fading or wear marks except for a heal mark in the removable drivers mat.

mine are the super plush type.

Nah no association with Knox, just know they've been around for ages and the owner has a thing for Ford GT's so it'd probably be the best place to go.

Re: Who makes the best moulded car carpets?

Interesting thread, but out of these two places, which version of these carpets is the correct style/type to fit in a gen GT to keep it lookin right? Must look period correct.

Re: Who makes the best moulded car carpets?

the originals would have been loop pile.

the replacements i got are long plush pile, helps with the raod sound reduction and thought it might keep it warmer when i was living down south.
