Many Beetles produced after 1970 had a new style carpet fitted. Such was the popularity of this great car that a material known as Perlon was a standard option. It is a modern felt type material much lighter than carpet dark grey in appearance which created a fantastic look when combined with the other interior trim colours. Now the carpet is back to 13 pieces and includes a pair of front scuttles a bulkhead mat a tunnel carpet a pair of sill pieces including fixing strips a rear load mat a pair of rear wheel arch carpets and four footwell carpets. The footwell carpets have a very hard felt backing which stiffens them up so they do not slip around in the fotwell areas. This is an extra safety feature but it also stops the carpet riding up the foot well. There is also a heel mat on the front scuttles (RHD only) tunnel and footwell. Supplied with 5 page fitting instructions. (Picture shows set for RHD car with both tinplates still in front footwells of vehicle see notes below )
