SOUND ABSORBERS NEWS

Dear members,

As you know, ALL the mats orders are up to date!
Regarding the sound absorbers, there are Back Orders to fulfill.
After recent new orders, today I placed the order for the rubber materials I need!
Those materials will be drop-shipped to the WATER-JET shop in Massachusetts in about two weeks. The water-jet shop has a production time of 2-3 weeks.
In about 4-5 weeks ALL SOUND ABSORBER ORDERS WILL BE FULFILLED !!!

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


As you know, in order to place an order for the water jet shop, I need a minimum of 15 sets. It took a few months for that to be the case. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A SET NOW, THIS IS THE TIME TO PLACE YOUR ORDER, SO IT CAN BE INCLUDED IN THIS PRODUCTION BATCH. I can increase the materials order only in the next few days.

After this batch, it would take months before another Sound Absorber set order can be produced!

Please send me a PM if you have any questions.

Thank you ALL for your patience.

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!

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.


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

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.

Hi,

Malachite mat and Türkis carpet together:


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.

Storing them FLAT would be advisable Wink

Received my mats, they look fantastic! Not to often you can say that about a reproduction part. If your considering these... pull the trigger you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Luis.

Just got notification that my mats, which I ordered in November, are on the way. If they are as nice as the ones I got for my lowlight I will be happy. You can order with Luis with confidence.
Thanks again Luis for stepping up and doing this!

Good job !!!


Just a thought - for those with the means to do so you might consider buying an extra set of the floor mats while Luis is in production. It'll accomplish two things - giving you an extra set to keep in mint condition, and help Luis with some additional product sales and revenue.

Glad to see this thread pop back up, since I hadn't seen it before. The floor mats in my '66 are all in excellent condition, except for the bulkhead piece behind the pedal cluster. Also, mine has the dimmer on the turn signal switch, not the bulkhead, so it doesn't have the left side hole. Can someone buy just that one pedal/bulkhead piece?

For now, I will sell them only in this forum, the price will be $25 each plus shipping. I will use these funds to ship all fabricated orders

This is strange when you charged for shipping at the time of the order of the mats.

You are correct, shipping is paid for.

The good news is that I'm shipping as many boxes as I can, tomorrow I will ship 20 boxes!

That comment was just a suggestion, as funds are tight because I had to buy more material than I needed, as the supplier had to make a special batch for me.

From the last post the following sets had been fabricated and curing:

R676463304
R485865872
R780888635
R689676401
R453847294
R224551594
R435653870
R401365972

In the next few days, all orders will be fulfilled!!!!

Kind regards,

Luis


Any time frame on new orders?
