I was lamenting of the lack of original parts for our concours restorations, thinking that maybe never in the future would I be able to restore a 914 to its exact factory look and feel.
My question here is if there were two identical concours entries, and say, one had aftermarket carpeting and the other factory carpeting, should the guy with the aftermarketing carpeting be pecked because of it? We all know that factory carpeting has long been discontinued, and although there are many aftermarket carpet kits that look acceptable, there is no substitute for the factory. If the answer is yes the guy with aftermarket should be pecked, then would that not spoil the spirit of the competition and discourage people from entering?
