Thank you for the kind words gentlemen!


October 2015

Now to fix the remaining gaps at the upper edges of the kick panels...

Lastly applied a final layer of sealer...

Picked up the seats and stuff from the car upholsterer.
The two-tone combo turned out nice in combination with the new carpet IMHO...

November 2015

Pattern for the carpet - in theory...
Image

And to scale... :D
Image

Basic cutting done...
Image

Used the old OEM rubber mats and carpet pieces as templates for further trimming...
Image

In situ trimming, fitting and cursing - clumsy fellow meets cramped confines... :lol:
Image

Image

Also fitted the cardboard templates for the rear kick panels...
Image

Applied the last butyl sound insulation mats and fitted the kick panel mounting brackets...

Re: Some old Bullshit...

Did you buy automotive specific carpet or something else for that? It's looks incredible.

Re: Some old Bullshit...

It's "needled carpet" and quite close to the OEM fabric used on the wheel wells of my '71 Super.

I actually used "Finett 10" but this product seems to be no longer available.

Similar stuff is called needle punch carpet in America I guess...
