Has the carpet and vinyl, I just got samples last week. They are professionals, and treat the customer the same.

Prices are competitive, and you know it will be correct.

Thanks Brad, we are trying to complete a NOS set, and SMS vinyl and carpet is close, but NOT A CORRECT MATCH to factory. Only interested in NOS Studebaker!

Have you seen the samples yet? I am trying for a nice close set for a good driver. My carpets are original salt and pepper red and would like to change them..
Have you ever come up with anyone who can recondition the sun visors?
Thanks

Ron, a good upholstery shop should be able to do it. My original sun visors were sent out by Michael Myer to a 3rd party who did them but the fellow developed cancer and could not finish them. So Linda, Michael's better half ordered an Eastwood vinyl repair kit and after several coats reconditioned my originals and then Michael painted or dyed them with fawn color to match interior. They are a little more plastic feeling with the vinyl filler used and not as pliable as original vinyl but they look good.

Ron Husak

They;re out there. believe it or not, I can't remember who I bought my carpet from. I got about 6 samples from various outlets and chose the closest based on a scan of the Avanti salesman's interior sample.
I've read some here badmouth al the currently available carpets, but I'm happy with mine and they're good enough for me and my very nice driver.

I'll ask the guy who installed them if he recalls who I bought them from.

As far as sun visors, the book "What the Avanti shop manual doesn't tell you" (advertised in TW) has a procedure for reconditioning them.

Is it common for people to not respond to Private Messages on this Forum?
Just wondering? Or is the system not working?

I have complete orange salt & pepper carpet - NOS - that I purchased at the 2003 SDC national meet in Sacramento. I need salt & pepper red. I will consider parting with my orange carpet if I can get NOS salt & pepper red carpet.
