Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2008: Floor mats part II

A fee weeks ago we all kvetching about the quality of the new floor mats, about 3 months ago I ordered a new one from Lang's to replace the one I bought last year, which was shredding. it stayed in the box until last week when I decided to change the oil & clean out the screen (which was very clean). Figured I'd unroll the new one & put it on, laid it out in the sun with the floor boards on top to flatten it.

The quality is much better than the old ones, much heavier rubber, seemed to be more pliable & went on easier, not one split around the pedals or lever, the old one came off in about 5 pieces, the new one's a little different instead of "Made in the USA" under "Ford", they have it in small letters over the parts number at the bottom, there must be a new supplier. Only split was in the palm of my hand when the Stanley knife slipped while cutting the hole for the Ruckstell lever.

Oh Alex! Guess I better add a 'Warning' sign to the box!
FYI - white mats have not been available for about a year? I've heard nothing of their return. I'll keep you posted if I do.

No one has ever made mats for 1925 open cars. I guess they think they don't exist!

Larry,

I think all the vendors have them.

Larry, what are you alluding to? Size, pattern, or ????

Trish,

Not to worry, only took 5 stitches <grn>, actually only took a little Neosporin & a "Spongebob Square Pants" bandaid & I am now playing the Mandolin again.

(Sorry, old joke)

Speaking of "Sponge Bob", due to sagging ratings, the Cartoon Network has fired Sponge Bob.
He was not one who made good financial decisions and thus, is now living on the street.

(sorry guys, I just couldn't resist it)

The 1925 mats are a special mat that came out in October of 1924 with the new wide cowl body. They look like the earlier mats, but are about one to two inches wider at the top than the mats they replaced. If anyone has an original they wish to sell, I'll buy it. Used is ok too.
