    TR4 Carpet Sets

    My resto is getting to the point where I am going to need a carpet set. Any suggestions as to quality & fit of the various vendors out there?

    Re: TR4 Carpet Sets

    If you want it to be correct then you are looking for grey carpet.

    My first set was from TRF and it looked great when new but exposure to sunlight turned it a weird shade of orange. They did send me a replacement for the worst piece (rear tunnel) but it also changed color.

    I got a set from Moss which was not quite as nicely made as TRF's but has retained its correct color.

    It is possible TRF has resolved this issue as it was about 16 years ago when I got the bad stuff.

    I also used the TRF blue vinyl carpet and the one piece to the rear of the gear shift has faded badly. It has been in there about 5 years. I would wonder if there is a difference in the amount of fading between the different types of carpet, ie, wool?

    It sounds like fading is a problem. It would be magnified here in So Cal.
    Has anyone used this company out of Engand? They seem to get great reviews on Ebay.
