    Thanks everyone for your responses. Unfortunately I have missed the warm weather for optimal carpet drying, but a wetvac should deal with the worst of it.

    I am optimistic that the car will be back with me by Christmas, front nearside wing and hatch door replaced and floor welding completed, and a glass-out total respray.

    Best wishes

    Latest......
    I cleaned the carpets with a hosepipe, some Aeriel and a stiff brush, followed by multiple rinse/spin cycles in the washing machine. It was a struggle to get the carpets in and out, one side at a time, but we have a large drum machine and they come out almost dry if you put the carpet in with the pile facing outwards. Very effective.

    Work continues on the body, no huge rush. Photos to follow.
    Best wishes
