The in-house trim shop at Bridge Classic Cars have begun the process of creating the one-off carpet set for the 1979 Arrow Ferrari Daytona.

Our trimmer Lydia has been working on the project to create the bespoke carpets. To begin with, she took the original carpets which were removed from the car during its teardown at the start of the project and laid them back into the car to create a layout and map of which panels needed to be bound and where but also this was done to refine the sizes of each piece to create a final product as close to an original Daytona interior as possible.

Once the pieces had been laid out, they were taken upstairs to our in-house trim shop to be transferred onto the new carpet material. Finished in dark green with matching edging. The original pieces were used as templates and refined to get the best fit into the Daytona.

The largest piece was for the rear of the Arrow, these were test fit into the car to take into account the many recesses and compartments particular to Arrow Daytonas.
