Need oddball floormats

I need floor mats for my 07 Exige that will accommodate both removing the center console (no inner inset cut) AND removal of the passenger foot rest (goes all the way to the wall).

Any leads on who can do this?

Thanks!

Possibly. Who does custom jobs?

I think a carpet store could add edging to a piece of carpet that you cut to size

I would get it setup the way you want and make a template

Do you want one piece two pieces etc

bring it to a place that will bind rugs for you, buying a yard or two of carpet is not a big deal

I’ve done this for several cars over the years . . . buy a scrap of high-quality cut pile wool carpet, cut it to size, then have the edges bound (most carpet retailers can do this or have it done for you). Many places can apply a brush-on latex backing too, or you can buy some and apply that yourself. This type of carpet lasts as long or longer than a high-quality auto carpet like Lloyd Mats.

I'll see if I can find a local resource as you all suggest, who can cut from a template that I create. I've called around to a couple of places who make Lotus carpets with the longer passenger footwell version, and those who make the carpet for the center console delete. But to combine the two is a one-off and either not available or prohibitively expensive to make.

Smoky,
I ordered floor mats from Fast Toys in 2011 when I deleted the passenger foot rest. It appears that they are still offering them:FTP Premium Lotus Elise & Exige Floor Mat Set w/ Foot Rest Delete :: Interior Components :: Interior/Exterior :: Lotus Elise & Exige :: Fast Toys Performance
The only feature that I didn't get that I wanted was a rubber surface under the pedals.
