Hello all,

The time has arrived to begin reconstruction of my 96 and there are a few bits I'll be needing - including carpet. Sadly, the old ones were absent. Anyone know where I can get some in reasonable condition? Or indeed new ones!

Huge thanks in advance,

James

I had a complete carpet set made by Coverdale, http://www.carcarpets.co.uk/.

Very nice carpets. though not cheap. You'd have to send them a template to work from, since if I remember correctly, the SAAB 96, is not one of their stock patterns.

Carpets are model year dependant, older 96s have no vent channel to the rear and need a flat front section. If you use the newer style carpet there is a useless floppy 'bulge' that can get in the way of the pedals (on LHD cars at least). I have a newer one in my '70 96 that I modified by removing the stitching from the bulge so it folds flat. I think all the rear sections are identical in shape.
