I bought a carpet kit long ago from e-bay for my TR3, I have since realized that it is for the newer style with the shelf.I only have a small amount of extra carpet that I bought and dont want to ruin it. So does any body have a piece that is from wheel well to wheel well at the very far back at the rear bulkhead to make a template? I will pay for any expensises incurred of course. Shows are coming up and trying to check things of my to do list!

Hi Dan,
If you are dealing with black carpet, I have the piece you are looking for, for the sloped rear area. Send me an email if you are still looking for it.

Howdy Folks,

I was skimming thru Bill Piggott Orig. Guide to Triumphs. I`ve purchased a Dk. Burgundy Int with White piping for my `57TR3 Small Mouth.

In Bills book; It reads that the carpet color typ. matched the Interior. I`ve been kicking around either a "Dk. Burgundy or Black" for more contrast.

What can you folks tell me about the "Carpet Color" for my car as being Orig?

Thanx, Russ

Although not a TR3, when I restored my TR4A I went with a black carpet as I had the shadow blue interior and that was too much light blue to make the carpet the same color. Note that I did restore it to be a "like new" daily driver adn not a show car (and had Amco mats to protect the carpet).
