This pretty much speaks for itself. Quality German square weave carpet, just as they did it back in ’67.
Here is a visual walkthrough of some of the process:
Hello, I'm Eric. I founded and curate 1967beetle.com. I also co-founded Lane Russell with my wife Amanda. I drive a '67 Beetle daily, and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.
Your carpet and interior is coming out great! Is there a "correct" order of installation for 67 Beetle's carpet? I've seen some where the heater channel pieces go in after, and overlap the kick panels. Same with the "firewall" (in front of the pedals) overlapping the kick panels. An article on 1967beetle.com of a WCCR restoration shows them this way. I've also seen them reversed. Is it just a matter of personal preference? I'm getting ready to do my Wolfsburg West set and am undecided. Thanks again for a great website.
I emailed you directly with that information.
That German Square weave just has a look of its own! Porsche, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce...all the classy European cars used it, even VW! I'm second-guessing my installation of the WW synthetic now. All I saved was about $200. But...it's $200 I didn't have, so I'm okay with it.
