If they actually fit a small premium after my Alderidge experience is worth paying, nothing more frustrating paying a premium over the cost of a length of carpet for one that's pre cut and supposed to fit that you find doesn't, doubly annoying is that the bits that don't fit have the edges bound which makes alteration a royal pain in the bum, for my coupe I'll be buying 6m of the finest carpet and making my own templates which I shall record for others to use on request.

That's looking very smart Andy.
It reminds me that I will one day need an answer to the question, how do you remove the rear seat base?

Two self tappers in front of the seat belt covers, then a sharp pull upwards.

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

I have had a word with Coverdale and am waiting for a response to my queries. The lady that responded to me thought that there were "only minor differences" between a GTC and a GTE, hence the problem.

Been making templates and cutting carpet today...

I was assured that they had templates for the GTC which is why i posted on here initially...... i wasn't happy when they mention a GTE and GTC in the same breath. I will have to buy further carpet to complete the kit.

I did get a reply to my questions last week telling me they had problems with the GTC carpets previously..... no mention of that when i asked for confirmation they did a set for the GTC before placing my order......

when the next project needs carpeting i will be cutting them myself!
