Volkswagen Type 3 Carpets
Volkswagen Type 3 CarpetsLooking for a carpet for your Type 3 Volkswagen? Our Volkswagen Type 3 carpets are made by TMI Products. These VW Type 3 carpets are the best carpets available for Volkswagen Type 3 cars. This durable VW Type 3 carpet looks like the original, and it's a sensible substitute to the original German Square Weave fabric.
You can purchase our VW Type 3 carpet in a full set. This means it covers the floor and the rear well (the whole area behind the back seat). Our Volkswagen Type 3 carpet comes in a variety of colors. These carpets 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 for the VW Type 3.
What You Need to Know About Buying a VW Type 3 Carpet: German Carpets vs. American Carpets
German Carpets:Original German Square Weave fabric carpets are very costly. They are for the extraordinarily dedicated VW Type 3 restorer who enters shows where judges with magnifying glasses identify absolutely original restorations.
American Made TMI Carpets:A sensible substitute is our best selling nylon loop pile (American fabric) carpet for the VW Type 3. These are just as durable and quite similar in appearance to the original VW Type 3 carpeting. You'll find color choices for all of our VW Type 3 carpets at the links on the right.
Installing Your Volkswagen Type 3 CarpetInstallation involves a careful layout and then the application of contact cement along the edges of the VW Type 3 carpet and bottom and toward the center (and along mating floor surfaces.) You'll have to "map out" the pieces according to the original Volkswagen Type 3 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.type3(FILEminimizer).pdf (Though written for the Beetle, these instructions also apply to the VW Type 3 carpet.)

About UsM & 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.
