Mini Cooper Register
I'd hang on for that carpet if I were you cos I think Newton Commercial are about to improve theirs to look much more like the original. 🙂
“Newton Commercial are quite highly regarded”
Not sure that is currently factually accurate given their current product range and the resulting posts on this forum and others.
Hello every one, i'm the happy owner of two cooper,
an austin cooper MK1 1965, one owner from new with
23 000 km from new and a rover cooper Monte Carlo from 1994,
one owner from new with just 50 000 km.
Regarding the MK1 the car is in an amazing original condition (brand as new!…) but unfortunatly i have to change the original grey carpet (used with some hole). Where can i find
the exact same carpet reproduction (colour and design. as we never see real original MK1 carpet design…Unless somebody have original good grey carpet to sale, but oh i'm already dreaming…
Newton Commercial are quite highly regarded: –
Or there are independent companies like this: –

Maybe so but their carpets are nearly always appreciated.
thank you very much for the answer, actually newton seems
to be a good one but there carpets model are not formerly the
exact replica of the first MK I model (hand brake lever gaitor:(, and plastic mouldable backing…)
I think you will find the handbrake gaitor is just velcroed on, I have asked Newton if it is possible to have a carpet set without the heel mat so I can use an original and they said no problem, so it is always worth asking them before discounting them. The moulded shape I would think although not authentic will make it a lot neater and less liable to move around.
OH That's a good answer, for sure! Now i am more interested.
I 'have only to check if there grey is the same has my original cumulus grey carpet. By the way do you know this:
[url]www.coverdalecarpets.com[/url], it's seems to be quite nice job too!
If the newNewton carpets are as good as the newly introducedDove Grey trim kit they've just sent me there'll be alot of happy bunnies on here ! :DI'll take some pics of the new trim and do a little review when I get a minute.
What do you mean? Do You think they are working on a new model much similar has the original one?:P

Pete is right I have been informed that they are changing there carpet as I had a moan abouth the one in my car.
Anyone looked at the carpets offered by Moss??
and do you the carpets from somerford? What was wrong with newton carpet?
Wrong colour wrong material
I'am waiting for samples from coverdale, they can supply carpet with Back hessian and they said that they have pattern for cooper MK1. They also can provide exact replica if we send us our originals carpets!!!:)Does any one know there products? i have found them on [url]www.coverdalecarpets.com[/url]
Got a reply from Jonny Newton he said that due to manufacturers going bust he has had to source the carpets from abroad. Therefore the carpets will be staying as they are
[font='comic sans ms']We had better widener our searches then:(Has anybody ordered one of their boot boards, if so does it have the locating plate attached ? I have misplaced mine and don't want to pay Ã‚Â£52 for the whole bracket set. Gray[/font]

I had a single tank boot board [ck951p] from them last year and it does not come with the locating plate.:(It does come with the wrong colour carpet though!:D
The thread has gone quiet. How did the Coverdale enquiry pan out? What about feedback on the others, Automobiletrim?
Texture and look of the Newton Carpet is wrong
No not seen the moss one but they only do it in grey, red and black it looks decent from the photos so will ask them for a sample.
I think if thats not up to scratch then we should try coverdales
i have received some carpet piece from newton and coverdales.
The newton has the wrong colour ( the grey is much too dark).
From coverdales there is one wich is very close to the cumulus grey (it's a Rolls Royce quality carpet with a mix of 80% whool).And they also do carpet whit original back hessian. Does any body knows about the colours and quality of MOSS product?
What is the feeling about the texture and look of the Newton and Coverdale carpets? Colour aside would they be the best match for the original fabric? I was thinking of dying the carpet if necessary as I feel the texture and look is teh first issue.
PS. The floor mat is availabel from Minisport in Australia, well a good copy anyway.
