    I don't believe that Adrian is going to produce any more carpets. However Stefan at dinoparts.eu list carpets quoting "original looks" and I seem to remember he said that he had been in contact with Adrian so I don't know if he is using the same source or not.

    I never got the carpet I was promised. I suspect it is now part of the stock at dinoparts.

    I tried to pay for it and get it shipped on several occasions, but it never seemed to happen.

    He certainly did a lot of research and work on it. I think it just overwhelemed him with his other work and personal life stuff which is understandable

    Folks, from following this thread I think Adrian probably has some serious health issues. Please consider this possibility.
    He did put an enormous effort into the reproduction of these carpets and from the results, it's been well worth it.
    The fact he has not been active after the results he produced is an indication for me that he is preoccupied with more serious matters.

    Has actually anybody who has paid NOT received their carpets?

    From my side, I wish him all the best.

    Yes I think that's true and he also said he'd not been well.
    I was a bit disappointed not to get the material, but I never paid for anything and I too wish him well.

    In the end I have cleaned up my original carpet and I'll refit it in due course. It's only a boot so it's definitely not worth spending 2 grand on.

    That's what I'm saying. But I asked a few times what the cost was but nobody replied, Well how much was the carpet from Adrian? Hopefully Adrian is ok

    I don't know - we only ever got as far as discussing the shipping cost.

    After I spoke to Adrian one year ago or so we did one production run for carpet material and sold out. Adrian gave all the information he collected to me. Now we are planing to do a second lot with a different factory. The last production already was to expensive in my opinion and now the old factory even asks more. Only the new factory has a high MOQ.

    So if the ones that are still looking for carpet could please raise their hands again I will check if we can get towards the MOQ or even above. Price of course will depend on the quantity we get produced.

    I’m in for the beige or gold black. Not sure what it actually is called. But it depends on price

    I too am still interested in beige/black. I also was wondering what was the previous price and what's the new price target?

    I may be interested if we could find someone to do the finish work?. I gave my allocation up to Al about the time I got my car from him. How is Adrian doing?

    I would be interested in black/blue dependant on price and quality.

    Hard to believe I threw mine away some yrs ago as thought the original quality was poor and make my own out of better straight blue carpet

    Hi, Stefan. I too was on Adrian's original list but fell below the cutoff line. I am still very interested in Beige / Black for a US-spec Dino 308 GT4. If you decide to go with Blue / Black I might still be willing to buy.
