Does anybody know where new carpets can be purchased for the interior of my SE?

Maybe he's drunk.... ;)

Nah, don't worry 7mercs, even if Craig doesn't come through for you there's a good few others who can certainly answer you. Parks and Styria are a couple of names that come to mind. :)

If you insist, but the question was "Do you know..........." so my response was accurate !

I can also recommend some companies in Germany, but the US will probably be cheaper. Both companies above are highly recommended, and I'm sure Styria will push the barrow for GAHH !

I have carpets from GAHH in my car and I have recently purchased the front seat leather from them as well.

Quality is excellent - just hand over the dollars.

For soundproofing, you can use Dynamat, or alternately, if soundproofing is not such an issue for you, you can use the throw overs that carriers use for furniture. You can buy this at places like SuperCheap for about $10, which is enough for one car.

Thank you all for your replies some of which made me laugh,however due to my first quote for a bare metal respray the carpets may have to wait.Complete respray including all consumables and labour will be five and a half thousand.Hope to have the old girl in her native colours ready by the end of December.Anybody else had their paint redone recently, if so how much did you pay?Thanks again and look forward to a meeting with you all in near future regards Dave;(seven mercs)

Sounds pretty reasonable for a bare metal respray. Presume they are doing some or all of the prep work, such as removing interior, windscreens, etc.  Paint and materials alone will take up $1500 if using 2 pack.

Car will be painted in original colour also the vehicle will be prepped and chemically stripped maybe not in that order.I have seen the quality of Matts work which is of a very high standard.
