    Lets Talk Carpet

    Yes, Its time to upgrade the carpet. I have people coming to town shortly, so I need new carpet in the MMMM. I have searched and looked. I want personal opinions if you have replaced your carpet. Who's carpet kit did you use? Were/Are you happy with it? Also, since mine is special, cause others are like it, BUT this one is MINE!!! I want the MM to welcome new carpet install.

    PFFfft! Carpet! MY truck has hardwood floors, granite countertops AND oak wainscoating!

    Seriously, though: Noahwins spoke a long time ago of an outlet that sold decent replacement carpets...and I'd like to know, too, because the hardwood floors are getting old.

    CALLING NOAHWINS!


    Hmmm...that always works in "Bewitched"...


    Maybe I'll PM him with a heads-up about this thread.

    Ebay. Fits great, almost any color you want, decent price. The company takes a week or so to make it. There is a bit of trimming to make it fit best (I'd rather have it that way).

    Merrill, that's the one I had heard about. Thanks.

    If anyone has that link, it would be very appreciated. Will pay for info in donuts. I recall it was reported they run about $130.00, which is pretty reasonable.

    Also, Noahwins sent this PM in reply to my query:
    StockInteriors.com and Rock Auto both sell a pretty wide selection of carpets -- I'd trust Rock Auto before Stock Interiors though for fitment.

    1155-90 CARPET 1990 Mitsubishi Mighty Max Reg Cab 2WD Cutpile $212.19
    ...ACC site

    I couldn't get a picture to come up on the site...sorta would like that.

    RockAuto is showing an "ACC#", for $100 less (cutpile). The "Essex" looks like it would be easier to keep clean, and the color choices are many. For the higher quality, it's still under $200.

    One problem I have: I'm afraid to take my old carpet up. I'm likely to find Jimmy Hoffa.

    So the vinyl turned out to be pretty hard to work with. It is incredibly thick and heavy material. It is oversized in all dimensions and you have to cut it to fit. You also have to cut the holes for everything.

    Well, I am not the most patient person, and I got angry with it so my result is not that great. I cut too much in some spaces. I think if someone was willing to take more time and measure more they would get a better result.

    You can see the floor here. Its like a rough textured heavy plastic. You can also see by the center console where i cut too much.

    Nice steering wheel, It definitely distracts me from looking at the floorboard completely.
    You may be able to camouflage that cut out with left over material. Use that yellow gooey weather stripping adhesive from auto parts store and place a patch there that looks like it was designed that way. Cars usually have an extra support piece of rubber by the peddles so it keeps carpet and stuff from wearing out from rubbing against it.

    Ok, I finally pulled the trigger on the ACC ESSEX Carpet w/ Mass Backing and heavier thread count from RockAuto. Bought a new clutch while I was spending money. No sunshine so its going to hang till its warm to install

    Ok, ACC Essex carpet came in a few minutes ago. First Impression, I am pleased.
    If the rear of my truck were to stay stock, I would have been upset. The "flap" is not cut or trimmed out for the cubby holes.
    That being said, this carpet will work awesome for my full coverage. Its thick, its Heavy, It smells FRESH, It will be a few weeks before I will be able to put the carpet in the MMM. So, this will be the time to let it heat up and air out.
    Stay Tuned!!

    I see this thread is kinda old but I would sell the carpet from my 95. Its in really good shape and would look even better with a good cleaning.

    Hey Jeb, probably sell faster in the for sale area for you. Then post a link to it in post that you reply to. Might take photo of it too, just an FYI.
