Thank you very much! I look forward to seeing the pictures.

Pics of the carpet as promised, I must have had to cut mine for the coupe seat locking bar, the four doors don't have that so the carpet comes without that cut. Been awhile since I put it in and couldn't remember.

Nice. Looks a good fit too. Mine were from the guy on eBay, Carhoods I think it's called.

Thanks guys, they look good.

Are the seatbelt stalks held in with nuts and bolts? Do I need to be in two places at once to undo them? What I mean by that is do I need to be underneath and inside the car at the same time to remove, or do they bolt into threaded holes or welded nuts?

Lock, on your carpet, what's the fit like around the gear stick?

Seat belt stalks are bolted into captive nuts so easy from inside the car. It was a tight fit.

Thanks for that.
On your carpet, are the edges trimmed, or finished, or just cut?
I see on Morris's carpet the edges around the gear lever look to be bound with vinyl.

I'm just trying to draw a comparison, that's all.

Yes, mine have/had bound edges though I don't see the point in them really as their covered by the carpet retainers that holds it all down.
I cut most of the trimmed edges off on mine as it's a bugger to re-fit those carpet retainers as it is! besides, Marina's never had bound edges to the carpet.

Are the carpets the same in saloons, coupes and estates? Or are the rear carpets different in the coupe?

Bryan - the carpets are the same as the floorpans are the same.

Thanks, Chris, that's what I thought, but wasn't 100% sure. :thumbup:
