Has anyone used this firm for sprucing up a tired interior? I'm thinking about it because they offer contrasting piping and leather seat covers.

The prices look reasonable. If you buy the seat covers, let us know what you think.

I think Tom Smith may be along shortly to relate his experience.

A couple months after I finally finished my Midget restoration I noticed the carpet had several places like these.

Here is the correspondence that took place where I was clearly considered to be the one at fault for choosing the cheaper carpet.

Not wanting another "mistake" I went with John Skinner for my TR6 and am much happier.

Hi Tom,
It’s unusual for this sort of thing to occur but as a side note the carpets we offer are priced according to quality they offer.

For example: Our Classic Wool carpet has a much denser pile and is more durable. We also recently carried out a full re-trim of a TR6 using German Velour carpet, which is original for Mercedes SL. it is the finest carpet available and has an extremely dense and luxurious pile that is very similar to the original TR6 carpet. The quality of the carpet all depends on how much you are willing to spend.

I have attached a picture of the TR6 with the German Velour carpet fitted. it has Racing Green, hand rolled leather binding. We also trimmed the car with full Connolly leather seat covers and full Connolly leather door panels. Please let me know if this level of quality and finish is of interest for you and I will get back to you with a price.

If you are interested, we can send you a replacement tunnel piece for $160.00 including shipping.

Kind Regards,

Chris

Chris,
The only possibility I can think of would be from vacuuming the carpet. The nylon strands are all that hold the carpet together and they easily can pull out of the edge trim. As far as I am concerned it is a result of poor quality in the construction and materials.

I will do what I can to repair the damage. One good thing is that it happened with the product installed in my Midget. I am now restoring my TR6 and I learned my lesson and won't have this problem this time.
Tom

Dear Tom,
I’m sorry to hear there is a problem.

Unfortunately the carpet set is out of warranty. Based on your pictures, we don’t know why this has happened because nothing seems to be pulling on these areas or interfering with these areas. Is the gear shift boot caught on the underside of the binding? Can you see if anything is interfering with this areas to cause the carpet to pull away?

Kind Regards,

Chris

About 14 months ago I ordered new carpet and seat covers for my 1974 MG Midget. A few months ago I noticed the transmission cover carpet seperating on the left side of the shift lever. A now see the same happened on the right side. Is there any gaurantee for this? Please let me know either way.
Thank You,

Ok, thanks.

I wish TRF or Moss offered contrasting edging.
