    its not sub box carpeting but similar , i got it from some fabric shop in town . its no where near as fluffy and a lot more stiff, i did the bulk head with box carpet.

    sorry mate no pics of that- it was the funniest thing ever though.
    just for people that dont know what happend-i fitted a new clutch 5 speed box new cv boots and a few other bits but when i put the wheels back on i forgot to tighten them right up (waht a loser) and then drove round for about half hour and thought my car felt a bit sketchy so i stopped and gave everything a good wiggle but everything felt tight so i headed home but 2 roundabouts later my front left wheels fell off and me and my mate did not have a clue what was going on but i managed to manouvre round the roundabout and pull up by the curb and jack it up but the funniest thing was there was a massive gauge in the road from the disc (which still works) and i had no idea where the wheel had gone but found it in a bush and luckily i have centre caps so that kept hold of all the bolts! good times

    haha, nice work! i had a fiat panda and both front wheels nearly came off that! all wheel nuts were loose on both of them, i came off the motorway and noticed a bit of an odd noise!
