Q: Carpet Installation (One Piece)
Has anyone installed the one piece reproduction carpet? If so, do you have any tips.
A: I installed a black carpet kit from ACC and was pleased with the quality. All the backing was good. I positioned the carpet over the high beam switch and the rest pretty much fell into place. It fit better than the original. One tip: Dont cut holes in the carpet to mount the seat brackets through in the rear seat area, just cut three sided slots about 1 1/2 by 11/2 inch and fold them back so that you can screw in the bolt, then fold the flap back over the bolt. Looks better than factory.
A: Thats funny all the factory installed carpet I’ve pulled out had flaps over the rear of front seat brackets. Another tip is not to cut the slots at all but use a scratch awl to locate center of holes then make a small incision just where the bolts go.Another tricky one is the boot area around a manual trans. Be sure and cut just enough for the shifter to work ok and leave the rest.Its very easy to cut too large a hole here. It wont hurt to have a little extra around the shifter hole.
