    ok i need some info to find used or new authentic jdm parts. now before you all yell out EBAYYYYYYY, i want to point out that the findings were less than satisfiying.

    I need red DC5 carpet.
    so far i found one on ebay but it was pretty dirty. Any of you guys recommend some of your local shops? I've already emailed one of our HS vendors so we'll see what he says.

    passwordjdm.com is pretty good. kinda spendy though. contact one of the engine importers like hmotors or torontojdm. they might have some stuff for you from a clip.

    thanks guys. It just sucks that no one in Tallahassee or near, gets this type of stuff.

    I spend almost as much just on shipping!

    just a point of notice

    the JDM carpet is cut and shaped for the JDM interior configuration.... ie: RHD, meaning that without a RHD conversion to go along with it, your carpet is not going to fit correctly... the passenger side will have all of the cut outs and such for the pedal assembly, fuel door, etc.... and the opposite will be true for the drivers side foot well (incorrect fit, no pedal cutouts or shaping, no fuel door bulge out, etc)

    ** here is a pic of what im talking about

    you pretty much end up spending a bunch of money on having a bright red carpet that doesnt fit worth a damn

    might want to find one out of germany or something... at least they drive on the same side of the car, so it will be cut and shaped properly

    whew.. thanks E. I'll see where the hell i can find those now. I'm doing the door panel insrt with red suade but want to get the red carpet first to match it.

    I think i'm gonna look into buy aftermarket carpet as well. Even thoug i hate the wrinkles and crap.

    you wont be well served with jdm floor mats either. you might be better off spending money for custom interior.

    also, you'll need to custom cover the door panels. jdm door handles will have controls on the passenger side and will be a different setup.

    basically, jdm stuff is a pain. the jdm look can be copied.

    ohh i knew about the door panels. I can get the suade done in a day for cheap. I just didnt think about the whole lhd vs rhd stuff. I'm searching now to find some red lhd carpet.
