Volkswagen Thing Carpets
Looking for a carpet for your VW Thing? You've come to the right place! We offer durable carpets for the VW Thing. Our Volkswagen Thing carpets are made by TMI Products. They are the best carpets available for Volkswagen cars, including the Volkswagen Thing. Our VW Thing carpets are durable, easy to clean, and a sensible substitute to the original German Square Weave fabric.
Our Volkswagen Thing carpets are available in full sets. This means they cover the floor and the rear well (the whole area behind the back seat). You can get this VW Thing carpet in a variety of colors. They are accurately grommetted around the shift lever, the emergency brake, and the seat belt points in every car. Trunk carpets, tire covers (sold separately), and matching floor panels are also available.
What You Need to Know About Buying a VW Thing Carpet
German Carpets vs. American Carpets
Unlike our VW Thing carpets, the original German Square Weave fabric carpets are very costly. They are for the extraordinarily dedicated restorer who enters shows where judges with magnifying glasses identify absolutely original restorations.
American Made TMI Carpets:
Our best selling nylon loop pile (American fabric) carpet is a sensible substitute to the original German Square Weave fabric. These VW Thing carpets are just as durable and quite similar in appearance to the original. You'll find color choices for our Volkswagen Thing carpets at the links at the right.
Installing Your Volkswagen Thing Carpet:
Installation involves the careful layout and then application of contact cement along the edges of the carpet and bottom and toward the center (and along mating floor surfaces.) You'll have to "map out" the pieces according to the original carpet or the floor contours.
We have a profusely illustrated "how to" guide to installing Volkswagen carpets. You may download a copy of these instructions: www.mtmfg.com/carpet.instructions.thing(FILEminimizer).pdf

M & T Mfg has proudly served Volkswagen owners for more than 35 years!
We have been providing Volkswagen restorers with parts for their classic Beetle, Karmann Ghia, VW Bus, Volkswagen Vanagon, VW Rabbit, VW Cabriolet, and VW Thing since 1974. We have nearly forty years in the Volkswagen restoration business! We originated in upholstery and convertible top parts but added VW sedan, body, glass, rubber and other parts.
We still operate the shop where we manufacture the convertible wood top bows for classic air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle and Karmann Ghia convertibles nearly forty years after we began. Our main building is a restored icehouse in southern Rhode Island. We have added separate warehouses, efficiently linked via our database of parts for air-cooled and water-cooled Volkswagen sedans and Volkswagen convertibles.
When we started making Volkswagen convertible wood top bows the demand for quality VW restoration led us to establish relationships with all Volkswagen parts manufacturers and importers. We came to develop a full line of replacement parts for the classic Beetle, Karmann Ghia, VW Bus, and VW Thing.
We developed relationships with hundreds of professional and home Volkswagen restorers. The community of Volkswagen restoration shops and private VW restorers has been invaluable in testing parts, helping us to locate special VW sources for parts and to securing help for our Volkswagen owner friends and customers.
