Now I’m just waiting for the next batch of those sound deadening mats to materialize…

Ooh, these look good. But a quick question: Where did you get türkis carpet set?

I was looking everywhere (AFAIK) last autumn and nothing, so now I have charcoal set for a light blue '63, while the combination you have, would be better.

Malachite rubber wouldn't look too bad on charcoal either, but as long as the carpet set isn't installed yet, I could buy more correct one and sell the set I have now.

Sorry to disappoint you Kharon8 but to my knowledge there is currently no Türkis German Weave carpet set available for Ghias. That one in the picture is just a single piece of NOS Türkis carpet I purchased years ago.

But I have to say that it fits perfectly with the Malachite floor mats and rubber inserts. Designers at VW surely had an eye for delicious colour combinations – especially during the early 60’s.

Unfortunately, my camera is not able to catch all those amazing shades of green and turquoise.

Thanks for all the behind the scenes communications, Luis. I am looking forward to getting a full set for my '66, along with a single bulkhead mat for behind the pedal cluster. Thanks for the willingness to fill in the dimmer switch hole and emulate the ribbed pattern of the mat for those of us with post-65's!

I appreciate your willingness to safeguard my original mat while you use it to get the most spot-on color match to my grey mats - and anyone else that has this shade of medium grey mat.

I have this colour dyed for my clients. I could make a set for you if you like.

The mats for my '66 Karmann Ghia vert came today and I'll let you judge the outcome for yourself. I sent Luis one of my rear mats (in the center of the photo) since there was confusion as to "Lava." Fortunately, we discovered that my "Medium Grey" color was not yet part of his color palate. It is now!

Look at the amazing job he did. Thank you, Luis!

Hi,

I apologize if this is not the right place to post this question but I figure that since most of you are now experts in rubber mats you might know the answer.

I have two foot rests; 31 cm and 27 cm. The longer one is obviously wrong since it is missing the tabs and is probably for a Beetle.

But when I test fit the shorter foot rest it's almost vertical.

The rubber mat, which is beautiful by the way, thank you, Luis, feels loose and floppy when installed over the shorter foot rest.

Will the slack be made up once I have some padding on the floor and the the wall or do I have the wrong year Ghia Foot rest? (I'm kicking myself because I paid $$ to have it powdercoated Embarassed )

Thanks

I think the 27 cm is right. An extra I have measures just a skosh over 270mm, depending on how you measure.

Cool, thank you, Clark3. Your extra foot rest is worth 40 or 50 bucks!

I was a little excited and was just test fitting things and may not have taken into account that the floor is not bolted to the body and might be sagging a little. I'll take another look but you can see it in the pictures.

(I hate it when I buy parts on the internet and their wrong and unreturnable! Shocked )

Now I'm starting to question why I put the old rusty original footrest back in instead of this one that I bought in the Classifieds. (I mean, I'm sure I did clean the original up, but bits of it were rusted away.) As you can see, I still have my old floor mats in place, and I've got my brand new ones to put in, so I'll take another look when I get around to that. Maybe it was longer, and that's why I stuck with the old one. (It has probably been 10 years or so.)

Well, you can always sell them on the Classifieds, but nobody's getting rich except the shipping companies!

Hopefully, he does great work. But he hasn't chimed in in a few months. Hope all is well...

These look great. Any chance the Beetle folks could get in on the action? I have an original ‘65-‘67 (over-the-hump) mat I’m willing to ship to use as a mold.

OK, I finally got around to pulling out the plate. I don't think the one I had in there is the original: I might have had three altogether and tossed the original because it was so bad.

Anyway, the one I had in there appears to be identical in dimensions to the spare:

I've decide I might as well sell the extra. Look for it in the Classifieds. Makes a great Christmas present!

Finally found an early, CorrECT more contoured at the ends 61-62? footrest. At some point 63?? the bent angled left and right ends were rounded off.
Rusty, but should be ok with a coat of por15..
Olive colored mats fresh from Luis, looks great with the upholstery, thanks Luis!. The extra paint i got from him worked perfect for the boots, being as its a 61 and just this year would have the rubber boots the same color as the mats. The original carpet color is supposed to be olive as well with these mats, but getting the tan squareweave carpet dyed may be difficult?..
Original paint nepal green handbrake.
