ACC is the best manufacturer I have found. I think most cars had the speckle pattern.

NPDs Burtex speckled. Good fit, but no stitched seams.

Some shots of the one in the GTCS as purchased for comparison. As a one owner car not overly molested, but not sure if this is the original, but condition and wear led me to this it is a possibility... but it is not stiched either, unsure if that was done on them for the GTCS or not... may be a service replacement as the trunk had definitely been painted with black "stuff" at some time in the past.

Just to add full disclosure ;) There were at least three different materials used at San Jose for the trunk mats. So "correct" doesn't have a single answer

From my pictures and notes there was

Speckled, Felt and Plaid installed on the line

Just sharing

I have seen all three. Our HCS had the felt. IMHO the splatter was the most used and is what is in our HCS now.

I used plaid (because I like it better).

Do they do the plaid in the Burtex material? Like the lay/feel of it better than the hard vinyl on the typical repro plaid mats I've had..

All three found during the period at San Jose in coupes (percentage of usage appears to change on fastbacks) built during the production period our cars were built

My collection of pictures show about even between the felt and speckled.

But its your choice - http://californiaspecial.com/forums/...ilies/wink.gif

Know they do for fastbacks - so believe so. The whole sewn corners is another discussion
