It appears I may have answered my own question. I just looked at vin 1166404 Black coupe on the registry. It appears to have a black bulkhead mat. My vin is only a few digits away…It must be black?

I have a question for all owners of early black 1956 Lowlights…I have a May of ‘56 black coupe. I am 99% sure I pulled out a “black” bulkhead / tunnel mat etc. out of the car back in 2008. I know the gurus have thought these mats were supposed to be “grey” for these cars. Does anyone out there have or had a 56 that had all black rubber mats, bulkhead, tunnel etc…? Thank you, Russ

So cool to find these being made as my last Ghia foray meant potentially sourcing carpet. Anyone have a photo of them installed in a pearl white or graphite silver ghia? Tempted to pick grey over brown though I know brown is og.

Dear Karmann Ghia Owners!

The water-jet shop made a mistake and delivered the order MISSING one part. After some negotiations we got more material and now all orders had been delivered and there are extra sets IN-STOCK for immediate delivery!

If you bought my rubber mats, get FREE SHIPPING! Use Coupon OwnMats in the website www.lowlightwerks.com

The new batch has pre-cut lines for RHD or LHD sets.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

GREAT NEWS!!

I just got 3 more orders, so we can proceed with the UNDERMATS/SOUNDABSORBERS production!

The price of the materials and water jet shop went up, but for this batch I will keep the original price.

Please send your orders now! The item is now available on the website www.lowlightwerks.com

If you have any questions please post them or send me an email: [email protected]

SOUND ABSORBER UNDER-MATS

I just got one more interested customer. ONLY 2 MORE TO GO!

They work for ANY year Karmann Ghia. is not just the looks, it is a lot quieter to ride with them!

The way it looks, it may take a while before they become available after this batch.

Thanks Luis! Wow what can i say. Great product. Only problem i had was in my rush to install it and make an upcoming show, i used the wrong glue. It held just long enough as it started falling off the verticals on the drive home! Oh well. Its now re attached with the proper 3m black super trim adhesive.

Hello Ghía friends!


A couple of good news:


I got a set of original RHS (right-hand side) mats! (thank you Nicholas!)

They are not in perfect condition but I can work on them and create nice molds!

Creating the 4 molds is in the order of 4-5K, so before I start making them, I need to know how many of you are interested.
All interested please respond to this blog to create a list.

Second:

I just talked with a good customer that wants 3 sets of SOUND ABSORBERS ( Floor under-mats)

I believe we should be able to produce a batch based on the requests I had since the last batch! (The water jet shop needs 15 sets).

Everyone that has been waiting for their set, PLEASE POST A CONFIRMATION in this blog, if you have any questions you can email ma at [email protected] or send a pm (private message) from this forum.

Thank you!

Luis
