If itís a CSX ....

call Shelby American in Las Vegas (702)942-7325
They probably can fix you up.

I needed new floor mats and was not happy with any I found, they came
through with the proper fitting mats.

I told you, ERA. They fit perfect. I know.


edit:
I bought some from Peter for a glass CSX6 and they fit perfect, snaps and all.

I've had the invisible 3m stuff back there for 15 years and it's great. If I look really closely, I can find little dings on the invisible 3m plastic that would have been big rock chips but for the protection it provides. I'd take a pic of it but, it's invisible.

I have been taping off the desired spat area
and spraying 12 coats of PLASTIDIP.

Has worked with better then expected results.
No rock chips on rear hips.
Total moisture and debris barrier.
Lasts about 2 seasons then simply redo.
Peels off in single piece without residue.

After a practice run I can do both sides at once .
Let each coat dry a few minutes then coat again.
Remove tape before last coat is dry.
This produces a nice clean edge line.

I use flat black but you can finish with
a couple coats of their GLOSSIFIER if
more shine is preferred.

If you already have some paint dings in that area
the application will fill in and not show through.
Unlike vinyl you will not have to chase air pockets
due to surface irregularities.

Default 3m

Patrick

That has been on for a long time. I have read it is difficult to remove after long periods. I have the same stuff on mine going on 7 years. I know there are newer materials that are self healing. I have entertained removing mine but haven't made the leap.

Naah, a heat gun takes it off tout suite. Lots of vids on YouTube showing how, but I wouldn't take it off unless it was starting to look bad.

Default Plastidip

I used this stuff on the underneath section in the front below the oil cooler. The section that always seemed to scrape on something and get nicked up. It came out great. Covers all the little dings.

What's up with this project, ERA626?
If you need the main spat material (unwoven backed leatherette), let me know. I have some in my office (I'm in the vinyl biz). Just PM me your address.
