floor mats

Leather, Tolex or Russaloid. Linoleum or black rubber matting. If it's in the cockpit or in the cabin, post your questions and answers here.

I believe it is the "packard" rubber, with the five or so narrow ribs close together, with intervening spaces between the sets of ribs.. dont have a picture handy but can get one if you need it.

Thanks, Mike. I see you are working on a '61 continental hardtop. cool boat, not many around. How about some pictures if you are to a point where the boat is taking shape again?

One of the last ones i remember being restored was Paul Harrison's, which i think was sold? "Over the top".

Thanks, we finished "Over the Top" a couple of years ago. It turned out really nice and then sold to someone in Minnesota. I haven't changed the project list in a while...I should probably do that.
