Carpet and floor sound/heat material for a BJ8

I am looking to purchase a full new carpet kit for a BJ8 and would be interested in who carries a good carpet. I am leaning towards the Moss carpet and would appreciate any feedback on their regular carpet and deluxe. I also see some suppliers carry an original wool carpet with a premium price.

Any feed back on preferred heat/noise barriers to be placed below the carpet would be appreciate as well.

Thanks

heat/noise barrier

I'm in the process of insulating the floor of my '67 BJ8. I took the gear box tunnel out & installed the Boom-Mat tunnel insulation on the under side. It's very heavy stuff & is advertised that it sticks to fiberglass & unaffected by wind & water. I haven't reinstalled the tunnel cover yet but it sure looks like it will do the job. I'm also going to use Dynamat above & on the floor. I purchased the Moss Motors deluxe carpet to also install. The carpet is no where near as substantial as the old original I removed but I guess you get what you pay for. I can email you some pictures of the underside of my gearbox tunnel if you would like to see it.

Thanks for the comments. I think I have a few good options figured out for the heat barrier now but I believe you addressed one of my carpet concerns. I mistakenly installed a poor carpet in my TR6 many years ago and regretted it so was looking for something close to the original for my healey. Not may options out there but Moss does have the best price.

Cheers.

You do indeed get what you pay for. I've been told to avoid Moss if you want quality. Otherwise go to someone like Heritage if quality is your priority.

Do you have the website or contact info for Heritage - carpet source

I have a 100/6 with Moss interior and a 3000MK11 with Heritage product, I cannot justify the difference in quality with double the price. At car shows most people cannot tell the difference between the two as far as quality goes, including the judges.

I got mine from The Healey Surgeons. About the same price as Moss ( which I sent Back ) but hands down a superior set.
