Re: [T3] repro rear cargo mat


I got very lucky and was offered, and purchased, a cargo mat that was
slightly blemished for $60.00 from ISP.  The great thing was that the blem I
believe was nothing more than a pencil eraser spot where the rubber was a
lighter color.  I cannot even find where it is.  Anyway, my cargo mat fits
my 1967 just perfect.  I would recommend that anyone who is in need of one
of these mats spend the $150 since it is a very well made and durable
product.

FYI - I was a my local junkyard [Russ Recycling in Duarte, California] and
for anyone who may be in need of one of these mats in brown, there is a
squareback [Tan color, yr. 68 up] that was in excellent condition junked
there because of major front end damage that had virtually flawless
interior.  I remembered being there last night and seeing that they still
had the cargo mat that was in very good condition.   Unfortunately when I
was there a few weeks ago there was a guy pulling out all of the paneling.
They are on the intranet for anyone interested and I believe that you can
order parts and they will ship.
