Molded carpet. What choice body type For my vert?


we have limited choice in australia for purchasing moulded carpet. Unfortunately with shipping cost, tax and exchange rate, the price is a little high to buy from NOS. 

But a big thank you to NOS for pricing up a quote for me. Great work and so helpful.

now my question is, I can only buy 4 door pillared sedan or 4 door pillarless hardtop (sports sedan?). These were the only body options available ex australia factory assembled. The convertibles were special orders through dealerships and assembled as RHD in canada so full import. Hence, any suppliers of carpet only offer options for the aussie assembled models.

what floorpan bests suits my convertible?

I have seen when making a selection on body type, between 2/4 door or 4 door pillarless. Should I order the pillarless 4 door or the 4 door sedan?

is the floorpan for sedan the sam as 2 door or am I completely on the wrong track?

cheers!

While the pillarless may not have dividers between the window glass, it will still have a support coming out of the floorpan to support the door. As such, I suspect the carpet will be cut out for the pillar. I'm guessing such a support would be larger for a pillarless hardtop than a pillared sedan. Just a guess though.

I know I grabbed a set of rear floor mats out of a 4 dr hdtp, and they had a big cutout for the support.

Clint is correct about the  'B' pillar cutout. Also a 4 door rear seat carpet has tails that wrap around the rounded corners of the rear seat.  Those tails will be cut off during installation in a 2 door htp or conv as the seat goes straight across. Those pieces may be large enough to patch the 'B' pillar cutouts. Best if they will make the rear section untrimmed and leave it to you. I'm almost sure the 2 door and 4 doors floors are basically the same. 

good luck Dale; sorry we could't help
