here you go don’t seem to have the blue but a few others, and yes just normal carpet.

we used the old carpet as a template,front first then matched the rear strips ,took our time and a sharp craft knife.
Used the old front mats again as templates for the new then took to a small local carpet store who bound the edges for us,we had enough left to do a big mat for the back,we have it covered in a carpet protector we got it in a caravan store,but most carpet shops do them,keeps the carpet nice and clean. After a summers camping we just use a fax carpet cleaner and it comes up nice and clean again.

same idea of protector as this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PLASTIC-CARPE ... 2c7bb97c42" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

heres 2 links to our build thread where we did the carpet.One should work with out a password.

did my van with veltrim about 4 years ago now. It was burgandy vt119. It has totally discoloured to brown anywhere not totally in the shade.
The high temp glue has held well though. It came from ebay - one of the regular advertisers but cannot remember exactly which one.
Maybe consider this when choosing the colour?

Seven years later and here I am reading this post. I'm in Lincolnshire too. I haven't made it to the end of the post. Did you so it? Are you anywhere near Skegness?

On a slightly related note, does anyone have a lead for carpet trim for the front seat boxes? Not interested in making any (too much else on). Thanks!
