I've dug through a few pages, and I'm having trouble finding who people have been using to source replacement carpet. Currently building a spirit liftback, stock appearance is not important to me. Who would you recommend?

I just ordered a full set for my 79 AMX from Stockinteriors.com
I don't have any experience with them however.

Thanks guys! I checked both, on one I can get the carpet and a headliner kit for about 600 (conversion and shipping to Canada) and on the other only carpet. I do need headliner so I'll give it a shot

In the end I went with stockinteriors.com. Ordering was easy, got a carpet with heel pad and I *think* high beam switch grommet, and a 2 yard headliner scrape and spray kit. Cost was 572 cdn with shipping, and UPS charged me an additional 16 dollars for import fees. 

At the start I was a little concerned because I ordered on a Sunday, but never got so much as a thank you for your order email until the following Thursday or Friday. The first communication from them was an email saying the product has shipped and tracking information was given.

The items are supposed to be here tomorrow, and look to be on schedule. The company recommends opening the box and laying the carpet in the vehicle ASAP so last weekend I pulled the seats and console back out in preparation. I will update further and document install on my build thread in the project section

It would be best to lay the carpet out in as warm a place as possible. In the summer the sun works great.

Summer sun would be great I agree, buuut it's winter here and hiding around freezing lately. It will go into the car in the garage with the garage heater cranked

If you don't need it installed I would leave it out of the box and wait for a warm day for it to really relax the materials.

I received an email confirmation immediately after I placed my order.  It was followed up by the "your order has been shipped" email and it arrived on the expected delivery date.

As instructed, I pulled it out of the box and shaped it in a closed off room to prevent our cats from having their way with it.  After a couple of days, my wife wanted her room back.  So I placed it in the AMX (interior is completely out).  But my shop is not heated.

I'm waiting for it to get above freezing for a couple of days to see what I can do with it.  Looks like it will get to 50* in about a week so I'll see about it them.

Carpet looks good and molded correctly.  So far so good and I think you'll be pleased with it.

A hair dryer will be a big help to form the carpet when you’re installing it.
