356C rubber floormat installation

#1 Post by Guido Kwikkers » Thu Mar 07, 2019 2:25 pm

I am finishing the interior of my 356 c coupe (1964).
Would like to know the exact places for the fasteners, is there a drawing or photo available?

Thanks inadvance

Do you have the original floor boards? If so, you can line up the fasteners on the mat with the ones on the boards. If not, I'm sure someone will post pics.

Dear Doug

Thank you for your help. Have to check how the passanger side is fastened.
Do you know (or have) a very original car type C (from 1964-5)?

I also have reproduction floor boards and a new mat without snaps.
