This carpet kit will fit any Mini saloon built with the late ‘square’ front tunnel, which was introduced in 1973. The previous tunnel design was much more rounded and included the hump for the MKI starter housing, which by 1973 had long been redundant on most models. Due to the nature of carpet we are unable to mould the Navy or Autumn Leaf carpets so these are a flat lay carpet that will need a little more patience to fit neatly around the tunnel. These are a popular option for those looking to match the brown and navy carpets used in the original Mini trim.
The kit contains the front and rear mats, a bulkhead covering piece, front wheel arches, a pair of sill carpets and a cross member covering piece. All necessary clips and fitting instructions are included. The kit needs to be glued in place with the tunnel trimmed and glued into place. Due to the non moulded nature of the carpet, the tunnel has a cut out at the bulkhead which allows the carpet to fit around the shaped tunnel and bulkhead pieces and will likely need trimming to give the best possible fit. Glue is not included in this kit and we would recommend you use a couple of cans of spray contact adhesive.
The sill carpets are supplied cut to size and fit with minimal trimming. The cross member carpet is supplied to be fitted right across the car, originally these only covered about 10" of the cross member working in from the sides and this piece can be cut down to size for originality.
