I went to Carpetright........... :blush: . Only cost £14 for a 0.5m x 4m strip off a roll, cut it to shape and stuck it down with double sided tape. I figured at that price I can replace it every season for minty freshness :laugh:

Your nearest meet is the Manchester one - calling John Williams to the boards...

 

Click

 

Not forgetting the main event, the National Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire on 5-6 May. :t-up:   You might want to wait until then for seats and seat belts to get a better idea as to what's available, find suppliers, try them on, etc. - those are the things that are better purchased after due consideration and patient thought.

 

Welcome on board!

If I was doing it again I probably wouldn't bother with velcro on the carpets as there's not really anywhere for them to move.

 

I've found that the velcro is too strong for the rubber backing and some of my strips have just torn off the rubber, taking a thin covering of rubber with them, when I've removed them. Like I said, I would try without any fixing and then add some later if it was needed.

Just to add to the fixing story.  I have some rubber mats cut from a roll and they stay put having been carefully cut and fitted to the space available.
