I have not found a good carpet set for these cars yet that I am happy with. I no longer even try. I only restore the original carpet. If it is not completely rotten then clean it really well. I even pressure wash them and keep it in the sun to dry for a few days. When it is really clean just use SEM fabric paint on it. It takes nearly a full can to do a carpet. You have to do it from a couple angles and thin coats. Turns out like new. If there are wear spots on the drive side carpet, I find original floor mats and cover it up. I am not at all happy with the replacements that I have looked at.
