    TR6 CARPETS advice pleaese

    I purchased carpets for my TR3A from a mob called Prestige and was sadly disappointed. I live too far away to bother sending them back. This time, for my TR6, I don't want to fall into the same trap. Someone said that Moss carpets are very good and wondering if others can give their opinions.
