My Getz has a hole at the place where the driver's right heel rests. I don't want to go and look for the OE mats, so I think I can just replace the front mats with these noodle mats.

TIA
I would suggest JC road. You can get the mats in your desired colour, quality and size. The price is also reasonable at 65-70 per sft.

You might get them at any shop dealing with floor mats and carpets, but check the price before you buy. I have got Duraturf for my earlier WagonR and current Celerio and I got them from JC Road.

Finally I completed the d.i.y noodle mat project for my Renault Duster.

I bought the mat from a shop near by. I knew the mats came in two and four feet widths. The mats cost Rs. 70 per square feet.

So I started off by measured out the mat sizes required in my car.
I needed two mats of size (2 X 3 1/2) for the front and two mats of size (2 X 2). All sizes in feet.
Once bought in these sizes, I could shape and re-size the mats to actual shape/size for the car at home.
To shape the mats, I used the carpet mats as a template. Only deviation was to keep the noodle mats little longer than the carpet mats.

Tools used:

Can anyone guide me where I can buy this mat material in Pune in wholesale rate? Nearby shops are charging 70-100/- per sq. ft. I think wholesaler might provide same for lesser rate

I got it from a shop on Thippasandra Main Road. When travelling on this road (from Indiranagar direction) the shop is located on the right hand side.
I am not sure about the name, it might be "Kala Kasthuri". The shop sells pillows, mats, bed spreads etc.

This is the rough location on google map:

Our bible always comes to rescue.

I went to bohari ali - found only 2 shops - 1) Popat shah or something - 2) Ashapura Trading near gala shoppe chowk.

1) First shop had - Durasoft rate 90/Sq ft.
2) Second shop is having lot many varieitres in many coloros. Company SofTurf - 60Sq.Ft

DuraSoft was plain in base while Softurf is having diamond like pattern in bottom, so no need to have velcrows at sides. & rate also in budget.

I was checking for grey color matching to interior of Lodgy. Though shop is mall, their storage in upper 2-3 floors. They had 2" width & 4" width both types.

What i did is first kept original mats on full news paper to check length & width. I have total 2 Front+1 Middle+1 Third row+1 boot pieces. Total area calculated was 57 Sq. Ft. I took 58 Sq.Ft to be on safe side. No discount was given in rate even if i took large area. Good thing is i got this piece from a complete new roll of it.


Following are few pics :


As per suggestions after bringing home , i kept roll in balcony with complete opened up in sun for 2 hours. though smell was not that much it got reduced to a some extent.

Then marking was done keeping mats vertical on sheet with 2" extra space on both sides.


Later cut the just horizontal marked pieces.

Then with chalk marked contours keeping extra space. & then cut them.


All mats fitted perfectly covering maximum space of floor. Looks awesome as well.

Now evertyime i open up door, there is slight smell of PVC, but i roll down windows for 2 minutes with blower on & all smell vanishes.

Overall a nice DYI. Thanks to Team-Bhp & all members as well for valuable suggestions.
