Hi.
The Rare Spares ones are NOTHING like the originals. In my opinion, they are poxy looking. Martin at Obsolete Rubber does a near perfect copy. I have a repo front floor mat & am totally stoked with it. PERFECT!! I was happy to pay the $$$.
Get the mudflaps from him, as they are so much better.
Regards,
Rob

I have just ordered a new boot mat from Obselete (sold one of the kids to slavery to get the money, after all FC's DO come first ;D) so I'll take some photos for you.

There is also a advert & picture in Unique Cars each month just at the end of the colour section.

Cheers,

Craig.

Martin at Obsolete Rubber Mats is beyond reproach he is great to deal with and very honest and his product is A1 i have purchased a number of sets of mud flaps from him and one floor mat and they are all great. Richard i think Sam Crupi in Shepparton is getting out of retro bits ,tony mentioned it too me at Hanging Rock i will check it out and let you know. The rare Spares mud flaps look appalling and not at all original.

I'm guessing its 'Obsolete Rubber mats'. Thats what it says on their card. No address is given so I think you will have to give them a ring.

Painting these mats...

Painting these mats is no problem either. I have painted these floormats on my EK using Dupont Vinyl paint. The great thing about this vinyl paint is that it comes in an endless array of colours, as the paint formula is taken off Arylic paint formula's with the vinyl binder added. It is also a one pack application and does not require hardeners or thinning, opposed to 2K. The paint along with the mats wear equally as well as the originals!

Prior to painting the mats i would leave them in the car for a number of mounths to mould into shape. Then take the matts out paint and refit them.

Sorry Emu, no pictures  :-[

The quality is EXTREMELY good though, and I would highly recommend them as a supplier.

One of the best repros of any part.

Craig & Martin

Photo's please. One question do they keep these items in stock or are they made to order. I was thinking as it is my 40th Birthday on the day I leave for the Nationals I might stop there on my way back and spend a bit of my birthday money and replace the carpet with rubber.

Cheers Jim

Hey Jim,

I contacted these guys a few weeks ago to get mats for "Hilda". None in stock. He said he would need a month or so. If you give him a call, he may be able to have some for your birthday,............you 'ol fossil.
