Default Derby City Corvette?

I'm about to order my loop 80-20 replacemnent carpet from Derby City Corvette... $250 with free shipping.

Best price I could find. Anyone here deal with these folks before?

They advertise the perfect molded fit for the 1975... I'm just wondering, before the order, if anyone here has done well with their product or customer service?

Thanks for the feedback.

Follow up question: If anybody found a better price on quality carpet, feel free to steer my thata way as well. Ordering Friday I think.

Thanks again.

Cheapest is not always best.

Who makes their carpet? ACC? That is what most vendors sell. These carpet sets are usually drop shipped directly from ACC.

If ACC, then best price should win because it is all the same.

Other choice is Al Knoch.

I got a bid of $433 plus labor for install, front and back. Not going with it because it seems pretty steep, but he did assure me that it was excellent quality carpet.

Only going to do this once and so am taking my time deciding. I also believe that the good stuff ain't cheap.

Our carpet set in pro choice brand is 250.00 on the forum special section... (same brand you are looking at)
Use the sale discount code and you'll get 25.00 off that price... No free shipping but the 25.00 should be cheaper than the shipping.

But if it were me I would go with the ACC brand carpet. It is the only brand we install in our shop.. It will cost you about 10.00 more.

I bought ACC carpet from Willcox. Nice carpet, best price, and best service.

Fair warning... those wheel wells are difficult to install. The rest is easy.
