Custom color carpet

I want to get new carpet for my car at some point but Kanter doesn't offer the correct color (medium pink).

I sent a message to both Kanter and SMS.

Does anyone have experience with needing an uncommon color of carpet made?

I think you will have more success getting a carpet dyed. Carpet production machines do long runs.

What’s funny is that the carpet in all my 1951 through 1954 Packards was pink but didn’t start out that way. Something in the way it aged or weathered turned it pink even in hidden areas. It stands to reason that if you really need pink, it can’t be found!

doesn't list the color choice so call them.
If it's legible, there should be a trim code on body tag. You can match the factory carpet color for that code from the parts list, if I remember right. Also the interior cloth, etc. It was in the back for 23s. It's on the main menu left highlights.
Not unusual for certain dyes to fade over the years.

Yeah it is a bit odd. I found 1 generic site that at least has hot pink for custom-made car carpet but I wouldn't really trust them for such an obscure car plus the color would be too bright anyway for the rest of the pink.

If anyone know the correct carpet for your car and has it, it will be SMS. Call them. Have your trim information ready. As Don wrote, maybe it isn’t pink, it just turned pink.

Possibly Bill Hirsch

Waiting on a reply from SMS.

I found this site that has a "maroon" carpet that seems to match.

Here is a pic of the carpet from under the doorsill I just took off.

Edit: SMS is sending me samples.

Obviously be sure to ask for samples before committing to an expensive kit! Roadworksauto’s site make me a bit uncomfortable for some reason.
