This flat-lay 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. 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.
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 carpet set replaces the need for this rubber mat that is no longer available.
Steering column positions are marked underneath the front 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)
