MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Carhoodz carpets

Has anyone had a carpet made by ebay seller "Carhoodz"

I had their sample through the post and the quaility of carpet looks excellent - but if anyone has any experience of sizing? or stitching etc? I'd be glad to hear it.

We got carpets from these people on ebay

They fit realy well, pile is good and they have a more flexible carpet for over the wheel arches. Also got the fittings and sound deadening. Ebay name chartoneauto however the ones from tripar on ebay also look the same. We have a 5 speed and they made the tunnel carpet without a hole for us.

They will send you a carpet sample if you ask.

I've messaged the guy that makes these carpets
I'm getting him to make me a set got my midget in the gold wool material which is closest to the original ochre I can find , he sends out samples, he's only up the road from me and I'm popping around the next week to have a look and chat to see the quality

Will report bk if wanted

That would be great Richard. He seems very nice by email, which I think goes a long way to saying his carpet will be well made too. Be interesting to hear back what you think.

Is this the guy in King's Heath?

I'm trying to sort out a carpet set at the moment, so I might see what they're like.

C L Carter

The guy is located near/in billesley area of Brum, not a million miles from Stratford road , he's the carhoods guy of eBay -
Makes boot carpets too !
I'm going for the wool carpet which is slightly more expensive but is the colour I want and is a very nice feel !
