What's the best website to get the interior carpet for our cars that fits well, etc? It's been a while since I've ordered this and when I did it was several years back.

Thanks guys!

Hi Rare...

Here is a good one... If not mistaken, the one that Mr. Mike recommends...

http://www.automotiveinteri...cc/84_88fieroacc.htm

From Mr. Mikes... "Get Free Shipping! When ordering carpet type "Mr Mike sent me" in the comments box to receive Free Shipping! *within the 48 states"

I used their carpet when cleaned up my interior. I ordered the extra backing, and the quality is great and it looks good. I have had no issues with the product and it has been in for 1.5 years. It still looks good.

Very good carpet! My old carpet was just old and a different color. So vacuumed, shampooed and dried it. I placed the new over the old and it’s really quite. It comes a little larger than the original so be careful with your cuts. I had to get some little longer screws but would do it the same way again.
It makes the interior look new again, especially if you do something with the lower door panels.
Good luck and have fun. Post some pictures when you can.

yep, just save yourself the time and buy from automotiveinteriors. I've had mine in for YEARS. You may need to do a little trimmin' here & there, but an otherwise perfect fit.

Bumping this. Did the mass backing keep the carpet from being wrinkled beyond use? I bought the ACC capret and I was never able to get the wrinkles out and it's looks more like it's just draped in there. I am hoping the mass backing will keep it flat especially along the console. I got samples of the mass backing and I am not convinced it's thick enough.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Again, I installed mine directly over the existing carpet. Had to use longer screws, however no waves and/or buckling at all. Let sit in a warm area for a little, maybe shipping caused some waves. If your old and/or new sub matting isn't smooth that would transfer to the carpet.

Hope all works out for you.

That site alsosells Avery floor mats, are they quality as well? Wonder if they are actually custom cut, meaning go all the way to the edge of the foot area? That is what I would like.

I also had no problem with ACC carpet in any of my cars. Its always best to let it lay out flat for a few days in a warm room if you can. Mine laid right in flat and smooth. Normally you do have to trim a little up under the dash and kick panels and maybe around the sills.

$235 shipped for new carpet? Does this include the firewall carpet? Damn. That seems effin cheap. I am likely to "blackout" my GT when winter comes. It is some kind of Ferrari red right now, but it has a few blemishes. I have the beach wood interior, but I just think all black would look sexier.

I have been looking at acc and stock interiors for new carpet. By the looks of it the firewall carpet is not included in either correct? I am leaning towards stock interiors atm.

I recently did my Nissan frontier for only $40.00 including the spray glue, for the curves and corners just use an industrial type heater blower on the back side of the carpet and gently reshape as needed. Be careful not to overheat !!!

i have the plush carpet from them with the heavy mass backing and it was easy quick and wrinkle free. All i had to do was trim near the sills and e brake a bit and a snip near the inner tunnel behind the gas pedal.
