If you are not looking for full restoration and concours, you should be ok with it.

From reviews online, not specifically pagoda products - a fair amount of people had issues with fit, missing pieces, missing stitching etc. And in those cases customer support was subpar.  So while their products may be ok, their quality control and customer service doesn't seem to be.

Thanks for the responses.  It looks like it will be a "you get what you pay for" situation.  The reviews on the company are not good and the quality is a bit suspect as well, so I will probably go with GHH or another supplier.

Check out  https://www.germanautotops.com/product/mercedes-benz-w113-1963-1971-230sl-250sl-280sl-carpet-kit/

I have purchased mbtex and a soft top from them and will probably get my carpet there too when I'm ready.    I think they are owned by gahh but they are cheaper.
