Moulded Carpet Set - Mini Saloon pre 73
This kit will fit any Mini saloon built with the early rounder front tunnel, with the Mk1 floor start 'hump' (regardless of whether direct or later remote gear-change); therefore all Mk1 and Mk2 cars, and Mk3 examples built up to Spring 1973*.
These carpets have a thin layer of sound deadening foam material glued onto the backing during the moulding process. The kit contains the front and rear moulded mats, a bulkhead covering piece with extra sound deadening felt, front wheel arches also with felt, a pair of sill carpets and a cross member covering piece. Along with all necessary clips and fitting instructions, a handbrake gaiter is also included!
Apart from the two main floor mats the remaining items need to be glued in place on top of the included insulating felts. Glue is not included in this kit - we would suggest you use a couple of spray contact adhesive cans. The sill carpets are cut to size and fit with minimal trimming. The cross member carpet is supplied to be fitted right across the car (originally these only covered about 10" of the cross member working in from the sides- this can be cut down to size easily for originality). We have marked positions under the front moulded carpet to mark the steering column position for LHD or RHD cars- it is easiest to get the best possible fit and neatest finish by removing the column from the car entirely before fitting the front mat. The front mat will need to have holes made in the correct positions for either of the two gearlever positions as the kit is designed to cover both variants- it is easiest to copy these from the original carpet but otherwise must be done by careful measurement. Carpet clips are supplied to fix these items in place.
* After early 1973 a new squarer tunnel pressing was used on all production Mini saloons- the part no for this carpet is NCMCK962. If you have any doubts as to which carpet set you will need to order please contact our sales team who will be happy to advise.
