Good morning all, I am nearing completion of our 69 firebird restoration, I took the car apart a looooonnngggg! time ago so I am struggling with some assembly, we got the carpet in and are installing interior panels, my question is about the carpet edge in the rear foot well where it meets the interior panel is there just a small section of raw edge between the windlace and rear armrest about an inch or two long? Thanks for any help Bill
Bill, yes, that was like that from the factory. The factory covered that small triangular portion with a small piece of vinyl attached directly to the steel floor and door jamb to match the color of the interior. You may (or may not?) recall having to peel those pieces of vinyl off when taking the interior out of your car.
Or perhaps a previous Owner removed them and tossed?
Or dig through your boxes and bags of parts and you may find them. They are kind of a triangular shape with legs in two directions. If not, you can use some vinyl pieces that match the rear side panels or seats.
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure. I feel like I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. 1968 400 convertible (Scarlet) 1968 400 coupe - R/A clone (Blue Pearl) (for sale) 1968 350 - 4 speed 'vert - 400 clone (the beast!) 1968 350 convertible - Wife's car now- 400 clone (Aleutian Blue) (Blue Angel) 1967 326 convertible - Sold 2008 Durango - winter beater 1980 T/A SE Bandit - Sold 2008 GXP - New one from NH is AWESOME! 2017 Durango Citadel - Modern is nice!

Thanks guys, It looks fine with everything else in, I did find the little triangle pieces with the cardboard backing, unbelievable because of how long ago I took it apart, I will post some pics this weekend.
