For the last couple of years I've been on the look out for replacement new factory Alfa Romeo carpet mats for my 98 Spider. Due to Alfa Romeo having cut production for a few years now, I have now decided to get my driver's side mat refurbed just around where it has worn (below the pedals from my heels) by specialist car upholsters.
I will report back later this week when I get the mat back, but if other Spider/GTV drivers who live in South East London/Kent/Essex are looking to do the same, give Jason at J Cooper Car Trimmers in Welling, Kent a buzz - he will make bespoke mats to customers requirements, or sew a patch of new carpet over where the heels rest as per my order.
When I was there Jason and his father were working on a classic Mercedes and an early 70s Capri - both retrimmed and upholstered by them.
They will also re upholster the leather seat bolsters which wear when getting into the car - mine was previously re upholstered but the I will be taking it to Jason as the stiching is now coming apart.
