Elan carpet sets

PostPost by: mrdoow » Thu Nov 16, 2017 7:31 pm

Does anyone have recent experience with carpet sets for the Elan (1972 Elan Sprint LHD DHC)? So far I've looked at Cloverdale (UK) Ltd. and AutoMat (NY) and I have samples coming from each. Any comments on shipping costs from UK would be appreciated also.

If you would state your location in your profile, you could get more feed-back
1964 S1 (engine ready, awainting body paint)
1967 S3 DHC (now adjusted by Brian Buckland, totally calm idle)
1969 S4 FHC (final interior stuff)

Cloverdale offer a good selection and have a good reputation.
I found them easy to deal with.
If you're in US carriage is going to be a significant factor.

I fitted a set of Susan Millers carpets in my friends series 3 last year & not surprisingly they were up to her usual high standards. Good quality carpet, well made, good fit & great fitting instructions for those who have never done the job before.
As said though, shipping to US may be an issue.
