carpet kits - datsunparts.com

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has used the carpet kits from datsunparts.com. One of the few I've seen that has RHD kits advertised.

datsunparts is a bit of a convoluted ordering process for overseas orders (no online ordering) so I went with these guys:

 

http://www.all-car-carpets.com.au/

 

Will post what the quality is like but I always prefer to go with Australian suppliers where possible

I think http://www.ausclassics.com.au/ does a moulded kit, but in another thread a guy was saying he was waiting for something like 4 months for his carpet from them so I steered clear!

Dean Apostle's site ( datsunparts) is a bit difficult to work out.

Basically you end up emailing what you want, he then has to work out a freight price, and lets you know total.

 

As usual anything from the USA will be expensive to be sent to Australia.

 

I and many others have sourced some hard to get bits, for older Datsun's through him.

No dramas.

i ordered carpets from all car carpets, took i think about 3 weeks pretty good, i've installed them in my car, they don't have the bits that cover the rear strut towers, not sure if other kits have them. the fitment is good but you will be required to do some cutting to get around the seat mounts, my kit was for the 240z

Did it come with the piece that goes over the tunnel and the boot floor?

I called tru fit and they don't make the boot floor, called aus classics and they don't make the tunnel piece.

Would be handy to get it all at one place.

Do you mind if I ask the price?

Thanks

Mine hasn't arrived yet but their pictures on the web seem to show the tunnel being covered but not the boot.  Price is as listed on web (plus shipping (which from memory was about $60 to Sydney).  A few options you can change so best to go look at prices yourself:

yes there is a piece that goes over the tunnel and the boot floor, it covers the tool box and the spare wheel well, it doesn't have the vertical bit that's behind the seats

Arrived yesterday - seems like a nice set up.  See how hard it is to fit once I've got the car back.

That was me. I"m up to 9 months I've been waiting now. And no, they aren't moulded.  I did get the soundproofing last month. Apparently the carpet still coming though, but his dog died, his fiance was sick, the business making them has troubles, but he assures me every week he's onto it.

 

How long did yours take? And do you have a pic of them installed ??

Mine aren't moulded either - comes in about 8 pieces.

 

Took about 3 weeks to get the carpet.  Haven't installed it yet as car is still having the mechanicals etc sorted. Will definitely post pics when done though !

Hi Guys

 

I need to order a set of carpets for my 240Z.  Ive been trolling through previous posts on the site about carpets and the issues with suppliers.  It seems that all-car-carpets are the best option at present.  I also seem to recall someone mentioning a supplier in Sydney, but can't find a name.

 

Please can I have some feedback from people who have bought carpet sets recently.

 

Thanks.

OK All we finally have a solution on some of this carpet issue.....

 

With all the troubles we have had with this and suppliers as discussed we decided to completely re-template the kits and do them ourselves.

 

At this point we have only done the 240 2 seaters as we have not had a set of 2+2 carpets to template from or a car to use. (Discount will be given to anyone who can help with this)

 

The 260 2 seater I will absolutely have to be sent your sill pieces to copy as there are 4 different ones which has previously caused problems.

 

The boot carpet will come with the bound split for the tool access unless you specify it without (like the pictured one)

 

Lindsay from the Z-Shop has also assisted with this and what we are now making is better design and quality than what has previously been available.

 

The floor mats are heavy backed so they won't bunch or slip and the kit is available in your choice of colour.

 

The kit includes all the original carpet in the car, 4 floor mats, sills and boot.  (Originally tunnel is done in vinyl)

 

This is $390 including postage.

 

If you want to do your transmission Tunnel as well you will need an extra 2m for an additional cost of $60

 

We can do the kit in original loop or what I believe is nice plush pile

 

Delivery is 2-3 weeks from payment depending on Australia Post.

 

I will provide you with a tracking Number.

 

Regards

Stuart

 

P.S. Vinyl can be purchased off the roll directly from Vyfab in Moorabbin for $15/m which is 1.5m wide
