reasonably priced cocomat
« on: June 19, 2008, 09:09:27 »
Found a reasonably priced seller of the famous cocomat. He offers  a sweet deal at $250 for the whole set (two front mats, deck mat and trunk mat) with around $10-$20 shipping costs. Im not sure about the quality but this definitely works for my budget.   I recently bought  a later model 1966  230 SL which has a trunck with the spare tire on horitzontal as opposed to vertical position ( I cant remember if it's on the driver or passenger side). The cocomat seller sent me the following drawing  and I wonder if it has the right dimensions for the trunck mat. Grateful for your advice.  :)

have you acually seen a 113 with the spare in the vertical slot in the floor on the left side?  if so that is a very early car as the tire was moved to the right side on a petistal to allow for a larger fuel tank.
in all the years of restoring 113`s i have only seen One.

my 64 230sl has the left side vertical well for the spare - and ithas 2 round holes in the bottom that appear to have been drilled out, presumably for drainage, altho there is no apparent rust in the well or the trunk.

Where is the "How to attach files" thread?  I can't find it in a search.  We need to make it a sticky thread at the top of the Photos forum.

Perhaps you should translate it!  :D
