Re: Carpet Restoration?

What color is your carpet? You might be able to disguise it a bit with glueing in some strands. I personally got tires of seeing that in my car and put in the mass backed carpet from ACC.

Re: 68 R Code

Door ding guards and a luggage rack are not exactly a turn on for most people.

Re: Engine Bay Refresh question?

People don’t like the hood blanket because it holds heat in the engine bay. But if you’re doing a concours restoration you need one. From what I’ve seen nice ones are almost impossible to find. I’ve been looking for one myself.
