Mercedes W123 300TD Velour Carpet Replacement

Post by michaelc » Thu 09 May, 2019 10:08 am

Hi

My 1980 wagon is a working restoration and because I've spend a fair bit of money on the mechanicals I don't want to purchase a replacement carpet kit just yet

What I need is a couple of square metres of velour loop stitch carpet to replace some areas that were affected by damp in the past

Has anyone found an inexpensive source of carpet that is close to the original??

In anticipation

Many thanks
Many Thanks

Michaelc

The short answer is no.

GAHH and World Upholstery have the correct material, you can order it online.
KHM in Germany do the OE fabrics for seats if you have a seat with cloth insert or velour seats.

MB Tex and Leather can be purchased via GAHH or World Upholstery in pre-made well-fitting kits, and the cost is bearable but watch the exchange rate and fees.

Other than that, you're better off not bothering.
