Is anyone still stocking the red/black carpet for 63 Avanti's? I have someone in need.

I bought mine two years ago from Phantom...their current status seems to be uncertain.
I received samples from several outfits, they included SMC and Auto Custom Carptets. Those would be yardage, not complete kits. Those two seem to be identical...and might have slight differences from the original Stude carpet.
Both seem to have slightly less black than the sample shown in the Studebaker salesmen's sample book.

Nothing I have seen offered the last few years has been a perfect match to the original.
I have been trying to buy used red/black carpet to patch a bad spot in my Avanti from anyone replacing their entire carpet. Anyone have some I could buy?
