  • need new floor mats - recommendations?

    I have the old rubber style, but I'd rather have the carpet, emblem, and seamed ones.

    thank you for the advice

    I've been considering some new mats too and have been looking at this company for some Coco Mats.

      Guv,

      Probably won’t help you much, but Martin McGregor usually has a nice selection of stitched logoed mats available for the TR6. You’d have to call him to send you some photos/pricing if you are interested.

        I got a set similar to these from Rimmer Bros. 10 years ago. They've held up well.

          Those mats look sweet and like a good value too!

            I got the Coco mats about 8 years ago. Still love them.

              Bought a set from one of the big 3 four years ago or so. They had one end unhemmed, so they could be trimmed to fit. They go well up in the footwell, and protect the carpet nicely. Not expensive, but functional.

              I really like the look of the coco-mats, though!

                I bought a set of the Cocomats back in the 70's, right after I got my 6. They were the all the rage for sports cards back then. Don't remember how long I kept them, all I remember was they tended to leave a lot of fibers on and in the carpet and wore out in spots. Finally threw them out. Been using the rubber mats with the shield logo, easy to keep clean and remove for shows.

                  Bruce:


                  You probably just wore those poor woven things out.

                  My cocomats came with a disclaimer. Seems they don't get on well with lead. Like, your foot, sir.

                    There was one other thing about them I didn't like, at the time, there were occasions when small spherical particales would drop onto the straw like mats and cause tiny brush fires.

                      perhaps you might have chosen to spend a few more shekels and opted for something with fewer seeds...

                          Nothing stands up to brake fluid from a leaking master as well as the rubber mats, and they keep said fluid off of the carpet too.

                              After I put in new carpet and underlayment, TRF had a good sale on rubber floor mats, so I bought them. Best protection for carpet from wet shoes. For our other cars, we’ve used Weathertech for the last thirty years.
