Who here has put in carpet themselves? Just looking for tips/tricks..
My race car has the old torn up factory style carpet and I'm thinking about using lightweight ozite. My 2 front seats can be easily removed and I do not have a rear seat.

Anyone have any pics and please post where you got the carpet and the materials you used.

Thanks!!

I did a t56 in my 1st gen and didn’t think a stock carpet would work with the modified tunnel. Bought carpet by the yard from ACC . Did a strip front to back on either side of the tunnel and did one piece over the tunnel and had the edge bound. Used contact cement from the upholstery shop to glue it all down. Had enough for floor mats also and had them bound.
No race car here so I do have sound deadened and 1/2” jute pad under it.
