This is the part of the build that becomes frustrating.  All the small fiddley bits that you have to do before you can fit the big parts.  It makes it look as though there is very little progress going on and the project seems stalled.  Anyway, dash and carpets are in, and all mechanicals should be done by the end of the week.

As I said earlier, I'd like to keep her which is why I'm going all out to do a great job.  Business priorities may force me to sell though.  If I do sell, she's not going to be cheap  8)

I had my trimmer in South Africa make up and fit a set, he's good, and I trust he will have done a good job.  I have kept the original set as well.

What sort of price would we be looking at to produce a few more ? If there was interest I wouldn't mind getting a set sent internationally!

If it helps, I have a set of what I believe are original carpets in my car (HS30 00150), I would be willing to lend them out to have them copied. Provided it can be guarantee'd they will be returned. I'm not 100% sure they are original, but I suspect they are.

Only issue is that they are cut pile, as loop pile material isn't available in South Africa.  If you're OK with that, I can ask for a price on a second set.
