Carpet retainers

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Ive just received my new carpets for the vitesse, my question is for the sill carpets, is there supposed to be a retainer type bar with screws which hold the carpet in place by the sills? There seems to be some small holes which look like they take a self tapper but i'm not to sure.

 

If there is supposed to be some retainer type fitments any idea where I can get them from?

 

Thanks in advance

Indeed there are. There should be an extruded aluminium retaining strip on each side, held in place with self-tappers. Try Spitfire Graveyard or one of the various breakers out there on Fleabay to source a pair. They polish up well enough, but avoid heavy corrosion/scarring if you are looking for a concours finish.

Tip for fitting is to use a thin electrical terminal screwdriver  to "feel" for where the hole is before fitting the screws. This will show you what angle you are going in at - they rarely line up square. Nice new shiny screws with heads all lined up, and you will be ready for the judges!

 

Good luck
