After the cleaning. As you can see the original color of the carpet and it looks nothing like the repro's carpet being sold out there. This is a stunning Dark Bright Blue color.

Mike.
If you check ACC website ACC look at their color choices under "cutpile". The Royal Blue is very close to what the original Dark Bright Blue carpet is. If they only had that color under the "loop" button it would make a good substitute I think for the original.

The problems I have noticed with the Bright Blue colors is the colors change or fade into other shades of the original. The only way to see the original colors is to see from an original piece that has been preserved or protected from the sun. The dash pads changed color big time. They got darker from the original Bright Blue. Sun visors on convertible lighten up on the top side, but the trim around the edges got darker. Carpet got darker from the original Bright Blue. Vinyl got lighter from the original Bright Blue. Even paint changed over the years. I believe the Marina Blue paint got a little bit darker that it was originally. That is what I have seen from my 67 Pace Car. All the pictures I post are original pieces, not repo. I hate showing any repo stuff, because to me it does not represent itself well or even close to original.

1 These visors have been taken good care of, but still show some signs of aging. Top is still good and not faded very badly.
