The mat looks amazing. I'm also interested in purchase, but only if all three are available (front, middle, rear). I'm not pushing for you to do all three, I know the front mat has dual use ( van, and pickup), and the rear two have even less popularity.
But.........
If you do all three, I'll buy the set.😎

Thanks again for offering an amazing product!

Steve

I'm interested in both the underlayment mat and a top mat for the center section.
Although your Greenbrier mat has cutouts for mounting middle and rear bench seats,I'd use your mats in the Corvan as a non-skid "bedliner" until I find my dream Greenbrier.

Put me down as a hypothetical buyer.

Eric,
Standard trim FCs did not have a rear (engine compartment) mat, only deluxe Greenbriers. I'm not interested in repop-ing deluxe mats, there's not enough market.

Thomas,
If I were to repop the rear mat support pad, the seat floor bracket holes would be cutouts.

Now I'm confused.
I looked at your pic and assumed the holes would already be there for seat mounting.
Did I miss something?
Would the mat be completely solid with the ability to create said holes?

...also.
Like I mentioned previously. I would require the top mat. That mat is the most critical piece. The underlayment mat (by itself) serves no great purpose in the grand scheme of things besides creating a fill-it underneath what would otherwise be a crappy original top mat.

But at least it would be a well supported crappy top mat! smiling smiley

I would repop the support mat with fillers that could be punched out for the seat brackets as needed, similar to how the clutch pedal hole of the front mat has a filler that can be removed for a standard transmission.

I'm awaiting delivery of a rear top mat. I'm not really sure of its condition and only after it arrives will I be able to assess the feasibility of repop-ing it.

If anyone else has a good quality FC standard rear mat that they are willing to part with, please let me know.

My 64 Greenbrier Deluxe had the middle floor and engine cover mats described here. But they were quite destroyed, so carpet has taken its place. I did salvage the under mat Steve is talking about.
The other issue with the Deluxe models is the color. All top mats were color. Mine being a Aqua Green had Aqua Green top floor mats, front, center and over the engine. These re-popped in Black would look great but not being the correct color, I agree with Steve, may be an extreme minimum demand item at best.
My thoughts would be that the under mat re-popped would give many at least a flat base to carpet over.

But I have to also show off my New Front Mat from Steve, installed in my Rampside!
Fantastic! The fit is great. My Rampy has an automatic tans so installation was a real snap.
I removed the Clarks carpet that also fit and looked great. But I carefully removed the jute backing and used it as a base under the new rubber mat. This worked perfect as a base to smooth out the floor. My carpet front mat will be on the table for sale at the Toss in a couple weeks!

I highly recommend you contact Steve if you have any present or future need for one of these. Once again, Steve, fantastic craftsmanship and detail.thumbs up
I could not be happier!

Steve,
Received mine this morning and am well pleased!
Both with the quality of the product and the way you handled the whole transaction.
I mirror Corventure Dave's comment:
"fantastic craftsmanship and detail"
This one is for the Navy Rampy....I will order another for the 8 door Corvan.
Thanx,

Would you be up for looking at recreating a full front floor mat for a late model? I have a very nice one but it's going in a manual and hate to cut it up for the shifter.

Both of my new mats were waiting for me when I got home today.

They have been opened, inspected, and are currently laying flat on the basement floor where they will stay for a while until the rubber if fully cured.

The mats look great and of very good quality. Thank You for making the effort to make these available.


Now all I need to do is actually purchase something they will work in.grinning smiley

So the market should be flooded with used mats now, right - the not-so-nice ones?

Where are all the for sale posts smiling smiley

Mel,
I'm not worried. These are not made of soft silicon rubber, they are made with one of the highest grade urethane rubbers on the market, intended for industry high vibration and shock dampening applications. The the black pigment will provide excellent UV protection.

Here is the mat. It is not NOS but in good shape, sadly it does have one spot by the pedal that is worn.

I apologize for the mildew it seems the building I had it in has a leak in the roof and the inside got humid and nasty, all my stuff will be coming out soon and cleaned. Ill clean it before I would ship if you were interested in making a mold.
