It has come to my attention that I seem to be one of the few people who actually own a set of very good condition USDM St185 floor mats in my car, they are original in the charcoal color and in 8/10 condition.
Because I would like to hold onto these and not wear them out any time soon, I became interested in picking up a set of floor mats.
Now obviously anyone who has gone online and tried to find a set of custom floor mats has come up empty handed for the 185, so with that I found several websites who provide floor mats to a large number of platforms, namely, lloyd mats. I sent a few emails to the company customer support and got a hold of their guy who actually takes all the measurements for the cars they provide mats for and through persistence I can now say that I am ready to get this group buy started as the measurements are in their system and ready for order.
The thing is, they won't be available through the website as it is technically a one off product. Although, since the person responsible for actually getting all the measurements and cutting the mats is such a nice guy, he has said that he will keep the floor mat patterns in his system files in case anyone else down the road would like to order a set.
I have deleted my spare tire and created, out off a gts rear carpet, a flat piece of rear hatch carpet that is flat and looks oem, I took measurements and made an exact template out of the hatch shape fitting snug against the plastics and have included this as a 5th piece option to those who have done or are interested in doing a spare delete and want a stock looking new carpet to fit in.
I am not a dealer and I will not be making any profit off of this sale, I really don't know where else to put this post I hope I don't get in anyone's way and if I am mods please let me know.http://lloydmats.com/
That is the website and any options that you see on the website can be used in the floor mats of your liking, with the exception of custom embroidery of anything toyota related, they do not have a contract with toyota and absolutely refuse to put anything that they could be sued for on the mats.
That being said, I will reserve two posts for 1; a buyers list to update, 2; a price list for the different levels of options that will be available as a base and up. Please PM me or post if you are interested and ready to pull the trigger on these, we have less than a month to get everything ready to order, he does free shipping, however there is a custom cut fee I am not sure how much it is atm.
Hopefully we can get this guy some good business for being cooperative and helping this community, once again I am not making any profit as once the list of buyers and their desired options are in I will send the email to him and he will send me prices for each individual and then I can send their price and how to pay him directly to the buyers.
Once again, if I am breaking any forum post rules please let me know so I can repost where needed and get the ball rolling on these.
