I know DarthRipley would love a set of OEM floor mats. :P

A set of black TRD mats like the ones I have would be nice.. I believe their for a MKIII Supra but they fit almost perfectly.

Indeed I would be! lol 8)
It's truly a holy grail as far as Alltrac parts go for me at least.
Even in Japan I've only seen a handful of sets available (I've only had 2 used sets) and that's when I had an importer bringing in containers so it wasn't just limited to Yahoo Japan auctions.

Can anyone get a company, not necessarily Toyota, to make reproduction OEM mats?

As long as they would be OEM quality, match the shadow grey interior (or be black for those that might want black) and have CELICA embroidered on them in the correct OEM font I would buy a couple sets for sure.

I'm moving this to Club Chat for more exposure.

I've mentioned in another thread that I've been talking to David at twosrus about doing reproduction floor mats as they all ready carry some for MR2s. I'm open to sourcing them from anywhere willing to produce a quality product, I just figured this would be the simple way to go about it as they all ready have all the contacts set up and a reputable site to purchase them from. While he seemed open to the idea and owns an alltrac himself with a set of floor mats to use for templates I don't think its gone any further than discussing it at the moment. As with anything in the alltrac world progress is slow moving but I'm hopeful this will pan out.

Here is a link to the mats the carry for the MR2s with reviews:
http://www.twosrus.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=22_42&products_id=443

He did have some questions in our last email:

Aside from grey, what others colors were available stock?
I wasn't sure if blue was an option I know I've seen it on FWD models. I wouldn't mind a black set if that was an option.

Would people be happy with only reproducing fronts?
He mentioned only to keep costs down and most rears don't see a lot of wear. I don't know about anyone else but I don't even have rear mats I only have one very beat up passengers mat so a full set for me would be nice.

I have asked if they would be embroidered like the MR2 mats but have not heard back I'm going to assume they would be. My Canadian model has "Turbo 4WD" embroidered on it (same as my stock rear badge) I know it was marketed with several names depending on location. What does everyone suggest would be the best option? To simplify things I think it best to stick to one option for the embroidery as to not overly complicate things. I'm not terribly fond of the "Turbo 4WD" badges I'd rather have "GT-Four" or a simple "Celica" but I'd like to hear everyones suggestions.

I'm not suggesting this as our only method of producing reproduction mats if someone has another idea please explore it, I'm simply looking for mats like the rest of you and any option would be better than what we have now.

I would prefer black mats with either "Celica" or "GT-Four" embroidery.

Grey or black with Celica on them would be my vote.

Id like a full 4 piece set, but wouldnt have a problem with just the front mats.

Grey w/the word CELICA embroidered on them was the stock option for most Alltrac/GT-Fours.
The RHD JDM mats I have and have had in the past had the word CELICA embroidered on them.
Canadian & possibly some Euro models have Turbo4WD on their factory mats.

I can ask BoostedBlue if he has mats & if they are blue or not since he has a Medium Blue Pearl. The blue carpet option would have been on the Medium Blue Pearl & 90-91 maybe some cloth '92 Super White models. I know for '93 USDM all models came with leather & that was shadow grey so the mats/carpet would have been grey also.

I want a complete set of 4, but if I can only get 2 fronts then I'll settle for that.
The only 2 things about making the mats is to make sure the grey is a nice match to the factory shadow grey carpet and that the font for the word CELICA on the mats matches the rear emblems.

YerRandO - please direct David to this thread and let him see the interest & that we REALLY need floor mats made pleeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzee!!!!

Firstly, there aren't enough pictures in this post.

Image

My 92 came with a full set of OEM mats in really good shape but they don't have the nice 3rd rear mat that the JDM set above does and they say turbo 4wd on em. Also I think my rear mats are more square...

Image

I could look into getting a reproduction run of mine made by someone locally seeing as there's this much interest - about 17 people so far by my count.

I'll put up pictures of my whole set if you guys want to see them.

I have the front 2 of the JDM mats & that's basically what I would want the reproductions to look like, except have them be LHD.
The rears in that pic are backwards ... the metal snaps snap onto the center hump piece & all 3 pieces form a snapped together unit in the rear.

I'd like to see your complete turbo4WD set to see what the rears look like on it.
