I've gone all posh. Mum came over for the weekend with her trusty sewing machine, and after a few quid spent at Woolies, I now have some nice carpet instead of rubber.....

The webbing strap is used to tuck under the tonneau cover to stop it interfering with the seat belts. I am in the process of engineering a more elegant solution.

It's a bog standard £100 Janome domestic machine - we thought we'd give it a go. The carpet is Woolies Polyester Rotproof (Vegan, so won't have Wool) so quite thin, and the binding tape is just cotton. Was surprised how easy it was.

Going to gave a go at the footwell sides later in the year.

That looks good. I think you could set up supplying carpets to the needy.
