Dear All!

I'm currently restoring a lovely 1959 Austin Healey Sprite, all's pretty straight forward and it's pretty much rust free which is great but whoever restored it 20 odd years ago decided to cover the whole thing in an inch thick of filler... must weigh a ton!!

I spent yesterday removing it all and so far have only discovered a few minor dinks that will vanish with a little tickle from a hammer 'n' dolly and no rust (yet!) so good news so far.

Anyway, I wondered if someone could help with a bit of advice? Who's best for carpet sets? I've spoken to Newton and Commercial my usual choice for VW's but is there anyone else out there offering a good quality kit?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Welcome to the forum, it'd be interesting to read more about the Sprite project Smile
