Yeah I know. Unfortunately my orig door panels with the lower patterned plastic were toast, due to the conditions I note above for the carpet. I was able to pick up some coupe door panels with carpet in very nice condition for a very reasonable price from a member vs. $900 each for repro from SMS. They look great and I’m happy with them, this isn’t an all orig show car.
So for those with coupes with red/maroon upholstery have you found new carpet to match the lower door panel carpet? and if so where?
