you can always try the dealership. that's where yoko got his for the cabby. definitely more expensive then $128, but super high quality.

That must have been a while ago (like when he started collecting parts for the project...when Tim was still working with Roger at BAS
)...they have been obsolete and NLA since the late 90s.
THERE IS NO GOOD aftermarket moulded carpet. They all will be missing the kick panel and firewall cover sections, they all will need to be cut for the seat tracks, shift/ebrake, etc, they will all fit funky.
PS no carpetkit covers the truck, it's a seperate piece.
First choice... OEM (used or NOS)...nothing will fit as well or look as nice as the original.
Second choice...custom or TMI. TMI kits have nice gusseted openings and are long wearing, but for a Cabby it's an 8 piece kit. A high quality custom kit will be expensive...but will be the best looking and you can cover whatever you want.
Go with an aftermarket moulded kit if you don't mind the hassle of cutting and fussing, and you don't mind a poor fit, and you don't mind making up for the missing bits like kick panels

Re: Mk1 Golf Good Quality Moulded Carpet??? (eurocabi)

If it's an oem color you're looking for, look around junkyards. As long as the carpet isn't worn or ripped, you can usually clean it up and it will resemble new. My carpet was haggard looking, so I decided to try to clean it while I had it out.
I used oxi-clean with a little simple green mixed in, sprayed it on the carpet, scrubbed the nasty spots a little, and then sprayed it with a hose for a good 30-45 mins. Then some compressed air to blow out all the sand and dirt still stuck, then a shopvac, and it was looking pretty good.

I've never experienced them first hand and was just going off their catalog

do yourself a BIG favor, and through the catalog away http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

as said above by a few, the best replacement is OEM, and since they've been unavailable for quite some time now, hit the yards and maybe you can salvage something much better than these aftermarket piece of ****s they sell


take care,
