    Cage + carpet R26r style

    Finally managed to get an oulton park cage, wanting to carpet the rear also giving it an R26r style. Had a look through a few threads but no definitive answers to wear you can get a similar coloured/style carpet. May sound stupid but do carpet shops actually sell vehicle style carpet?
