I'm looking for any recent experience with carpet sets from MM, VB, TRF, etc. and post-installation thoughts on quality, etc.

I tell customers to get the flat carpet sets instead of the moulded ones and spend the rest of the money on professional installation. Basil 707.762.0974 basiladams@yahoo.com

This is the company that manufactures the carpet sets available from the usual suppliers. I learned this when I restored a '74 Mini and bought their kit for that car. I wondered why they don't list MGB on their site and was told their MGB carpet kits are sold through Moss.

I was happy with the Mini carpet set and recently purchased a new set for my '70 BGT project from Moss.

I just installed a standard Moss kit for 67b. It takes two people (especially on the tunnel) because you will need to stretch the carpet a bit. The rear fenders were the most difficult to fit, hard to install without a wrinkle. Follow the instructions step by step. There are pieces of brown insulation to put under the carpet on the floor and the tunnel. I chose not to put it on the tunnel because it would make it much more difficult to install the tunnel carpet and saw no real need for it. I am happy with the results. joe
