    Hey guys my OEM floor mats in my '94 are finally shot (unrecoverable stains and fronts have been heel worn into swiss cheese). I've been looking around for replacements but they're getting hard to come by in good shape for the gray and tan colors. Tried some other SLOs and Sables even and they're all heavily beat on so I've decided to go the aftermarket route but would like to get ones as close to OEM as possible. Seen plenty of NOS stuff but they're all in the fr00ty other colors.

    As I understand from searching it looks like the top 3 choices would be between impalasscarpet, ACC, and Lloyd mats - although it seems like impalasscarpet is no longer around. I just have a few questions I need cleared up:

    - Is impalasscarpet still around? I'm assuming I'm SOL here.
    - I know both Lloyd and ACC come cut to the original shapes but only Lloyd states they have provisions for the factory mounting anchors. Does ACC also have the hole?
    - Regarding the colors does anyone have a set of either and how close do they match the opal/mocha (black is black of course)? Lloyd has a variety of grays but none are listed as opal specifically. I'm assuming since they're licensed Ford the standard "gray" should match? ACC has opal listed along with other grays specifically, but oddly no mocha or tan at all. Names of the colors that match?
    - As for materials I know ACC is about as close as I'll be able to get since I have some of their stuff in Mustangs & Capris. Lloyd I'm guessing their cheapest option is close to ACC's cutpile?
    - Also anybody know the specific Ford part numbers for the front and rear sets in those colors? I've only been able to find partials. It'd help immensely in looking for the correct stuff.

    Thanks in advance for any additional info. Once I do decide to pull the trigger on something I'll come back here and post the results.

    The grey colored OEM ones for a newer Taurus (up to 2007) can work, check E-bay and cross references on the part numbers, these can still be had new. Still looking for tan - mocha replacements myself, that are OEM Ford quality

    Thanks for the suggestion but the mats in my '97 aren't cut the same (slightly larger and different shape towards the upper footwell and the anchor hole skews them) and the gray is off (the graphite is slightly darker than opal). I do like how they have SHO specific logos tho compared to the 2nd gen. Going from the information I have I think I'll go with Lloyd mats after getting material samples from them since I can order just the fronts unlike ACC, and can customize them with a near-matching gen 2 logo if I like. I'll update how it turns out.

    I may have some factory NOS mocha or opal in stock.
