RHD Rubber Floor Mats
sander288 - September 11th, 2012 at 07:54 PM

Does anyone one know of a supplier that makes stock style over the tunnel RHD rubber floor mats for a 60's beetle?

Heaps of RHD carpet kits and LHD rubber mats but no RHD rubber ones that i've seen.



vw54 - September 11th, 2012 at 08:55 PM


they are NOT made any where

Hi Shaun as the tunnel is only a straight run with cut outs for the handbrake,heater knob and the pedal cluster

why not get a sheet of either plain or a patterned rubber from Bunnings or one of the rubber suppliers and make your own.

If you need a pattern I think I still have the old centre section of my Ghia carpet.

Contact Wolfsburg West. The guy that made our RHD rubber floor mats for our oval supplied them to WW for a limited run.

They may be able to help with RHD sets for 60's beetle as the demand is increasing over there. 

vw54 - September 13th, 2012 at 07:52 AM

Is that the guy in Thailand ???

if you dont have the foot rest on passenger side then it would be good

shaun if you can get him to reverese the foot rest area great I will have one to

MISS VDUB - September 13th, 2012 at 12:29 PM

No he's in the U.S

vw54 - September 13th, 2012 at 02:11 PM

bet he gets them done in Thailand

dont matter do u have his contact ??? PM them is you can find

MISS VDUB - September 13th, 2012 at 06:41 PM

No he didnt, he had a mould made for the RHD Oval rubber mats and made them himself. We bought the last one which was his personal back up. He supplied WW, but had kept a couple himself.

These were oval only, not later. As mentioned if you contact WW they may be able to assist with someone who can help for later beetles as the RHD scene is growing over there and they get lots of people asking about them.

His name is Eric Jones, and runs a business in LA called The Label Company. Eric has a RHD '56 Beetle, and made a 'run' of RHD mats, to amortise his costs in making the moulds. He's a good bloke, and has helped me get some bits, including the 356 drum brakes for my No. 8 Beetle.....and of course, a set of '56 floor mats.

MISS VDUB - September 13th, 2012 at 08:27 PM

Bloody top bloke! :tu:

sander288 - September 13th, 2012 at 08:31 PM

I've emailed WW to ask about 60's rubber floor mats and Ron hadn't a clue where to get them anymore either.

They only have the RHD rubber ones listed for 1956-1959 beetles

Frustrating really; surely there would be a need for RHD rubber mats? Not as many of them as LHD but still....

I suppose they weren't sold in the US so aren't "important"

I might ask Lenny Copp at West Coast Classic Resotrations and see if he's got anything to add....

XXX-1.8T - January 27th, 2013 at 08:38 AM

I'd be keen for a set!

Resto64 - February 19th, 2013 at 08:31 PM

sander288 - February 19th, 2013 at 08:41 PM

:sniffle: nope

benny_acko - February 20th, 2013 at 08:41 AM

Sander if you find out anything can you let us know in here?I was considering buying some rubber sheet from Clark Rubber (down the track) and making my own attempt at a compromise...but one made off a pattern would be better im sure!

ian.mezz - February 25th, 2013 at 07:01 PM

Hi I have contacted a manufacturer today.

If enough people wanted these mats he would need to have a minimum of 100 orders with a non-refundable deposit of $100. They would be about $300 a set or maybe more.

Can anyone tell me if the Aussie mat set share the same pattern as the US types?

I'm not doing this for me understand, I would just like to help out. Otherwise its use what you can, or carpet :(.


65busser - August 27th, 2013 at 10:10 AM

I've got an original RHD front mat that would be a good one to copy but $10 grand up front might be a challenge !!

Pacific-Dubber - August 29th, 2013 at 05:56 AM


It is a lot isn't it. :D I was thinking if he did just the two fronts instead of a whole set that might work out a bit cheaper.
Anyways early days for me. A set was on eBay UK for 99 pence :(.



65busser - August 29th, 2013 at 06:18 PM

I'm thinking the front mat for a big window Beetle 58- 67 is a one piece over the hump moulded unit. One piece?

Pacific-Dubber - August 30th, 2013 at 06:13 AM

65busser I am not sure.

Mine is 100 piece mat made of rust & rubber. That's why I would like a newby. :( I find it really hard to understand why such a majority type car has no production of a product that a lot of people seem to want.

Maybe I have it wrong. Maybe everyone is happy to put up with carpet.


XXX-1.8T - November 21st, 2013 at 09:44 PM

I'd be down

Maybe put some posts on the uk forums?

Spread the word on Facebook too?

Have a look on the samba oval black rhd rubber mats $300 set plus postage, if you type in RHD into a search it comes up recently

RHD Floor Mats 55-57 Oval Window
Parts - Type 1/Bug - through 1957

Canni. - March 23rd, 2014 at 06:39 PM 

^ Yep Eric has a few sets left, I ended up buying them for my 60 bug as I wanted to replace and they're really the only option, not quite correct but trimmed to fit with a new carpet and looks great.

I believe you are right...

Over here in the US I have found that Lenny at West Coast Classic Restoration ( has mats for 56-59 Ovals but not for 60's with the larger one piece front mat. He did suggest that we could get a set of RHD mats and a tunnel mat from Wolfsburg West and do a combination, but no one is making the large front may for RHD cars.

Blue65 - April 27th, 2016 at 10:55 PM

My Beetle has the original flat mats. But they are very hard to clean and the flat design don't stop dirty rain water that runs off my shoes from swishing around.

I saw these two mats in Autobarn. Streetwize Houston and Washington. They cost under $10 each. So total cost is $40+

Breath width is a near perfect fit. And they have rubber spikes which keeps them snug to the original mat.

They also have reservoir type edges so if you get caught walking in the rain - they will help prevent the dirty water from running into the floor pan.

Made of heavy rubber - they also lend a nice feel to the car when I get in.

The ones for the front need some alteration which you can do with a strong sharp scissors.

Hi Bluey,

Do you a picture of the rubber floor mats installed i your car?


beetle1969 - March 25th, 2018 at 09:38 AM

Another old post for rubber flooring so seems like theres a few been looking for the original looking stuff for a while now.

Anyone with any leeds on actually getting right hand rubber flooring ???

bdub - July 7th, 2019 at 05:58 PM

What sort of interest is there for RHD rubber floor mat sets?

I ask this because I am looking to copy/reproduce from OG mat set initially for 1956-1959 Oval Beetles

and other models ie. 1954-1955 and 1960 onwards if processes can be successfully arranged
