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.

DIY - 3M Nomad-Style Floor Mats-noodlemat3.jpg

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.

Purchased the roll for my 3rd row as the ready-made mats available at accessory shops were not fitting the entire area as I wanted. Explored couple of models in local rexine shops and finalized on the softurf-star model. It is available even in small cities. Costed Rs. 475/- per running meter for a two feet wide piece. Took around 1.2 meters and cut it with scissors to fit in the space.

This is same as the one mentioned couple of posts above. Only difference is that smell is negligible on this.

Has some grip on the back side. It stays put as we get in/out.

It is not very thick. But, should serve the purpose.

Is this place near to Shaniwar wada? Rawivar peth is having so many by-lanes that unless one knows the exact shop, one might go asking at wrong place?

Yesterday I had inquired at Khadki market, and there the rate of green noodle mat is rupees 80 per square feet. Not sure about the rates at other places of Pune?

So last week I went to JC Road and got the Softurf Star for 55/sqft total 24 sqft 2' X 12' (shop opposite to the Indian Oil petrol pump). I got it for my Tiago to cover the front, back and boot.

I am thinking of cutting approximate size and then use scissors for precision cuts as per the requirement. What do you say? or should I use OEM mats as template but they may not cover the whole bottom as much as I would like.
Please suggest.

Did a little DIY myself for the mats. Below are the pics:

Need to sort out the back seat hump, didn't realize and cut it wrongly. Now need to separate them and add additional mats on the hump covering it completely. Used OEM mats as templates and cut them larger than OEM mats. Also added velcro strip using hot glue on the driver side as it was moving around a bit. Happy for now.
