I am planning to buy a complete set of carpets from Lakewell however this colour is not a standard colour in their option list.

What would be the name of this carpet colour ?

Wine Red maybe?
Magenta?
Burgundy?
Plum?

Looks like it was originally a nice colour Han, but a bit of a strange combination with the blue paintwork. smile

G Gill trimmed mine as well....



Segal Motor Trimmings stock a range of TVR colours. That's where I got the vinyl for my centre console.

Han

Well done for saving another S from extinction.

I would think about a contrasting carpet colour, given that the seats and trim seem do be a dark wine colour. Very now! To match the carpet may be too much of the same thing. Originalty does not matter because there is no such thing with a TVR!

Looking forward to meeting up again soon in either of your steeds. Please send my best regards to Anita.

Cheers
Tony

Tony, the voice sense of as always..............if the leather(ette) is ok, I would even darken it a few shades (with a furniture clinic set, you can lend my compressor and spray-gun, if needed) and have the carpets in grey...........I know it sounds naff, but dark red (call it ox-blood) and grey over bright blue will look good ! If you need a hand > call !

Hi Chris, could come in handy, thanks ! I know my swirl pot is flaked but not sure how the overall condition is.

What do you want for it, PM if you like.

Thanks for tips !! Didn't condsider to change the carpet colour because I like original ;-) But you might have a point and magnolia carpet with burgundy overmats could be an option ;-)) Not a fan of grey and since the console/seats are full leather I just clean and wax them, no need for re-colour..
