I believe that this company is just a middleman that buys their carpets from Auto Custom Carpets. I deal direct with ACC and have received good quality carpets. Cant say that they are the best but they are good and fit well. Replacing a carpet is a real PITA job. The interior essentially needs to be gutted, of seats, rear panel, door plates, center console, radio panel,shift console, and support .

Almost every reproduction molded carpet seller gets their carpet from the same supplier.

If you actually manage to find a carpet supplier that matches the OEM carpet, you've basically stumbled upon the grail. Please let us all know who it is, if so.

Recommendation on Mr Mike's site is to leave the jute off of the new carpet and put the new carpet in directly over the old. Thoughts?

The aftermarket reproductions typically do not have as much matting underneath, but you can often order thicker matting. I'd say it depends on what your goals are. I plan to use spray/brush-on sound deadener and insulation in my car, so it won't need as much padding to kill the sound. Having less matting and ligher carpet, along with thin spray-on sound deadener, means more weight loss, with being able to keep a nice looking interior (as opposed to bare metal everywhere and lots of noise).

If you want more insulation, don't care about the extra weight, and the original is still in decent condition, feel free to keep it in when installing new carpet.

Don't rip out your old carpet unless rotton and smelling. Replace with car and boatcarpet on a flat roll as there is no shape in a fiero floor so is easiest car ever to put new carpet in only need about 4 cuts.

There is (or at least was a couple of years ago) an upholstery supply in Oklahoma City that had a couple hundred yards of the carpet material WITHOUT any backing. Would be great for door panels, but without some way to bond it to a backing, it's not worth the money to buy it.
