Installation Instructions

Loop Carpet – Use care when cutting and/or placing screws through the carpet, as the loop can be pulled out in continuous tufts, damaging the look of the carpet.

Part I: Remove Old Carpet
1. Take new carpet from the box and lay flat to remove any wrinkles due to packing. Allow at least an hour or two for carpet to settle.
2. During that time, remove the front seat assembly. To do this, the seat must be unbolted from the car floor. Also remove the rear bottom seat cushion.
3. Remove 4-5 sill plate screws (metal moldings under each side of each door). Most cars will require a Phillips screwdriver.
4. Remove accelerator pedal, if necessary. If your car is a GM from 1958-1964, you will find that the gas pedal can be taken off by lifting the pedal off sideways.
5. Remove any gear shift knobs, boots, or consoles. In some vehicles, seat belt floor brackets must be disconnected to remove old carpet.
6. Remove old carpet. On some later model cars, an additional layer of insulation/floor padding is used. Do not remove this padding. If your vehicle has a catalytic converter on the underside of the floor, do not remove original fiberglass or other flame barrier material.

Part II: Test Fitment
1. Place the new carpet over the old carpet to compare the size and shape. The contours should generally match with your new carpet.
2. Sweep or vacuum the interior floor thoroughly before installing the new carpet.
3. Position carpet in the car for installation. The front carpet should have the heel protector pad on the left hand, driver’s side. The rear carpet should have the seat track cutouts facing forward and it should be centered over the transmission hump.

Part III: Trimming to Fit
*Please Note – Carpets with holes cut in the wrong place will not be accepted for return. This procedure must be done carefully to avoid incorrect alterations.*

Front Carpet
1. Lay the carpet flat as you would like it to sit once installation is complete.
2. Fold in half lengthwise by pulling the front edge back over to meet the rear edge.
3. Place the center of the folded carpet over the transmission hump, just in front of where the front seat sits.
4. Slowly unfold the carpet towards the firewall.
5. When you reach a shift lever, cut a small X shape split just large enough for the shift lever rod to fit through.
6. Lift the carpet up and slide it down over the level through the X slit.
7. Repeat the above steps if a second shift lever exists and if your vehicle requires a cutout for a floor dimmer switch.
8. Once done cutting holes, center carpet over the transmission hump and work towards each side to smooth wrinkles. Some customers like to brush or spray adhesive on the floor to give a smoother, more secure fit. After the correct fit is determined, fold back the section of the carpet, apply adhesive, and smooth down by pressing into position.

Rear Carpet
1. Lay the carpet flat as you would like it to sit once installation is complete.
2. Depending on…

a. If the seat belt bolts were removed – Using a sharp long pointed tool or an awl, find the location of a middle seat bolt hole. Pierce the carpet and enlarge the carpet hole. Put the bracket on top of the hole you made. Force the bolt through the bracket and turn. Tighten the bolt using a wrench. Repeat for other seat belt locations.
b. If the seat belt bolts were not removed – Starting at the middle seat belt location, find the site of the seat belt brackets and trace around the brackets’ floor parts with a crayon or chalk. Using sharp scissors, cut inside the lines you traced one-at-a-time. Lay the carpet over the center hump, pull the center belts through the openings, and smooth the carpet toward the sill plate. Find the locations of the outer brackets and use the same method as the middle two seat belt brackets.

Part IV: Wrapping Up
1. We add excess material on some carpets at the sill plates, which should be trimmed with scissors so that it ends under the sill plate.
2. After the full installation of your carpet is complete, return to the shift levers and cut the holes larger, but be careful not to cut the hole larger than the boot that will cover the area. Replace boots and shift knobs.
3. Some models will require hole openings for steering posts, pedals, mounting brackets, etc. These holes should be cut carefully, after verifying the carpet fits properly with the steps above.
