This moulded carpet kit will fit any Mini Van or Pickup 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.
Originally the Mini Van & Pickup were fitted with two rubber floor mats to cover the cab floor but these are generally now either in very poor condition or missing. This moulded carpet set replaces the need for this rubber mat that is now longer available. The front mat is moulded to fit the floor pan exactly, while the rear mat is supplied as a flat piece of oversize carpet to be trimmed to fit over the tunnel.
Steering column positions are marked underneath the front moulded mat for either LHD or RHD vehicles so that the customer can punch the correct position. We recommend the removal of the steering column from the vehicle to achieve the neatest fit and finish, and to make the job a little easier. Separate patterned flat carpet pieces supplied are included to be closely trimmed and glued to the cross member, bulkhead, wheel arches and sills if desired (although originally these areas were not even protected with a rubber covering)
