  • 911 Carpet Kit - Cabriolet - Professional installation is highly recommended 

    Every last piece of carpet in the car's cabin (aka all but the frunk). OEM material was Sliverknit. If you're ordering a carpet kit, don't order any of the other carpet pieces (not including floor MATS or frunk). 

    Cabriolets have a bit more carpet used throughout them (rear quarter panels, rear deck) so they cost a bit more.

    There are quite a few options for building the carpet kits. Going exact to OEM is best for a cars call, but there are merits to other materials as well. Some quick descriptions are below.

    Carpet:

    Sliverknit is the OEM style of carpet. Colors are manufactured to match original specs. It looks good and is easy to install. Squareweave is a classic, more sophisticated look. Tough to clean depending on the color, but it lasts a really long time given its design. Goes well with leather or cloth binding. A much more difficult install, adding about 3 hours for our experienced installers with all the right tools when done in our shop. Spectropile is a more resilient material. Easy to clean, doesn't pill up when it gets dirty like Sliverknit. It does have a bit of a plastic feel to it though, and most importantly, doesn't come in OEM colors. some colors are generally close (dark blue spectropile looks good in a car that came with dark blue sliverknit) but they aren't matching colors.

    Backing:

    Dotted Jute backing is the OEM equivalent. a bit outdated design material wise, but its the "right" stuff. We also have a modern rubberized backing, which is a grippy rubber that has less chance of sliding around, and it's a bit lighter too. Not that this is only on the floor carpets of the car. 

    Binding

    Vinyl Binding is what was usually OEM. It's a durable option with no real downside. Leather was an option of some sort, but pretty uncommon. Its a really nice touch, getting you the most style points, but is susceptible to scuffing and water damage, as all leather is. Cloth is an old school option that was used on 356s. Stylistically, this option is probably a personal preference. It is more durable than vinyl or leather, and has no real downside. its just a somewhat unusual material to see in a 911.
