Well, I made a little progress on the Belvy this weekend, I installed my budget sound insulation and laid the carpet but just loosely for now. Boy you were right Bob, this carpet doesn't fit very well.

Hi Chris...Very nice job on the insulation! Yeah, Isn't it going to "kill you" to trim off those nicely bound edges? The only bound edges you'll have left is the flap at the hump and the one that runs under the seat! I couldn't even save the bound edge at the firewall. Will you be able to? Why in the heck did they bind all the edges at the perimeter if you have to cut them off? I couldn't understand that for the life of me1 The only thing I could come up with is that they make these for the bigger models too...Fireflite, Firedome, Adventurer, Newport, New Yorker, 300 etc...but they wouldn't be wider would they? Longer yes...but not wider...hmmm. I wound up sending my carpet back (because they advertised it as no trimming necessary) and then making my own which was more difficult but cheaper. I made mine without a flap at the hump too. One plus...the color of your carpet looks good with your door panels, dash etc...at least it does in the photos. Does it in person too?

Bob

Thanks there Bob! My only gripe with the insulation is that the adhesive isn't very strong but I definitely agree about the bound edges on the carpet, why in the world did they finish the edges just to have them trimmed off? I'm not positive but I think I can use the nice edge at the firewall, I've also deduced that the drivers side seam on the flap is not where the gas pedal goes Smile so I'll have to cut a hole for the pedal to align the heel pad properly. Oh the joys of cheap carpet! But not really all that cheap! And yes, it is a pretty good match to the rest of the interior.

Looks like you're making some great progress. Smile That's too bad about all the trimming you will have to do to make it fit right though...

That's looking fantastic Chris! You sure are moving that car in the right direction. That carpeting looks very nice as well. Christine thanks you!! Razz

Keep up the good work!

I can totally understand the trimming part. I wouldn't want to do that either. Makes me wonder why it is you have to cut it. scratch Its a shame really..

I think your right Kera. Looks like theres some excess that needs to be trimmed to make it fit perfecto! Wink

Yeah, the trimming part doesn't sound fun at all! What I would worry about is it fraying later on... Would it maybe be best to take the carpet to an auto upholstery shop for them to trim it and then do whatever they need to do to protect it from it fraying later on from where it has been cut? Or trim it yourself, and after its been trimmed correctly, and then take it to them for them to protect it from fraying? What I mean is, maybe they could put on a bound edge, as like what it had before the necessary trimming had to be done? Smile
