Wool certainly looks better but stinks when wet. TVRs are generally not water tight so I chose to install synthetic carpets. They still look OK after 15 years use. I found Coverdale excellent to deal with. I opted to buy carpet by the roll and cut it to fit, a big mistake as I still needed to get the edges bound, far better in hindsight to get a ready cut and bound carpet set. Be careful when removing the old carpet around the parcel ledge as you will need it as a template. Coverdale supplied spray on glue was fine but the glue remover less so I found white spirit to be far more effective

I used Coverdale carpets in my Rover P6. That was 12 years ago and they still look like new! I also bought a set of overmats which are the same material with rubber footpads!

Piccys are when I was fitting them!

D&C trim do a nice set ready edged and fit well. I've fitted several of their carpet sets. If memory serves the carpet they use is Coverdale.

I ordered a set from Coverdale - went with the manmade as it's an open car and may get wet inside.

Lady from Coverdale called to double check something on the order and ended up fast-tracking my order which arrived 3 days after placing the order. Really pleased with the service and the product - can't wait to get them fitted now.
