Red carpets in a Yellow car...?

Postby RichardK » Sun 29.10.2017, 04:22

I have a new set of red carpets which I was saving for my red car ( will probably never need them).....so I have just bought a yellow car with tired grey carpets, Q: would you put red carpets in a Norfolk Mustard Yellow car?

Answers on a postcard.....

Yes well, in my defence, it was a long day yesterday & and the grey carpets are in pretty poor shape...Thanks Chaps!

Now does anyone has a right hand side rear light cluster?! Spoiling a rather nice exterior!

Rare as hen's teeth and they cost twice as much.

Try the usual breakers ie DVB, Apollo etc but check on the quality first as I have seen duff ones go for £££€€€$$$ 8)

Only if you are trying to replicate your national flag on the car (green seats and blue hood as well, perhaps?)

Not in yellow, though they would look good in my red elan. Any chance of selling?

Have you noticed RichardK's location? Shipping might be expensive. You can still buy them from SJ Sportscars.

I'm less concerned about the yellow wheels and more concerned about the parking......!!

I think that these cars are more about the driving than just the looks - if it goes okay, and you can't see the wheels from the drivers seat, it's someone elses problem :lol:
