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.

Yeah if that isn't too much trouble :) cant promise anything but would appreciate it if you could. Am in the market for a carpet kit currently

And the slow progress continues.  Some more updates.  Very happy so far.

 

 

 

Ha Ha if this is slow progress my work is glacial in nature.

 

Its very very nice even at its slow ( ::) ) pace

The motor is now assembled, mated to the box and installed, happy days!  The guys are running behind schedule as the car is supposed to ship this week.  They tell me it will be ready next week.  Hmmm, time will tell.

The csl is next in line for a full resto and is currently stripped.  Here are a few photos of the '73 RHD csl that I restored at the same shop and sold earlier this year:

Great taste in motor vehicles mate. CSLs are amazing

Thanks.  This is my pride and joy though, 9 years to build, every nut and bolt by myself and featured in three magazines:

By the way do you know what they used to clean the engine to give the alloy the flat dull factory look? Did they water/aqua blast it?
