The carpeting in a classic car is just as important as more standard classic car fabrics, so it’s essential to make the right choice. As with the upholstery fabrics, you can find carpets that match what was in your car originally, such as the carpets from Jaguar. Choose between wools, needlecord, tufted carpets and more. Whether you're recarpeting the boot or the walls,the right carpet can freshen up your car. Carpets in classic cars have usually taken some wear and tear, meaning they can become dirty, faded and stained. If the previous owners of the car smoked in the vehicle or let their dog ride in the car, the carpeting can also hold onto smells. A new carpet freshens up not only the look, but also the smell inside your car, making it well-worth a change during your restoration work.
