Cross members get hammered on Bugeyes. Take a look at the chafe in this particular car in the photo below… the red carpet has been well-beaten by spirited entry and exit. This six-piece rubber mat kit is here to help. It protects the entire footwell area and covers your carpet with rubber. Rubber is particularly nice to add to Bugeyes, as the original factory mats were all rubber. That factory rubber material is no longer available, so we have the next best thing.
Each kit includes six rubber pieces: two footwell mats, two crossmember covers, and two triangular inner footwell covers. Since not all cars have actual accelerator pedals, we do not slot the side inner footwell cover… customers with accelerator pedals can add that cut easily upon installation.
This kit is a very popular add-on for any recently restored Sprite. The mats protect the new carpet. It’s also useful in a case like the one shown, where a new carpet kit and panels are needed, but this rubber kit dresses up the worn interior and makes it nice once again at a lower cost than a complete interior restoration. And if you eventually go for a whole new carpet kit, you can still use these ruber over-mats to protect your fresh new carpet later.
Installation is easy, as shown in the video above. The side mats lap under the footwell panel and the cross member mat unlays the carpet as shown. These mats will dress up any Bugeye footwell! The kit includes mats for both sides of your car.
The side and cross member mats work in LHD or RHD cars. The large floor mat is for LHD only, because of the accelerator pedal cut out for LHD cars. If you want the side and cross member mats for a RHD car, feel free to email and we can send them to you.
