Re: Mold your own carpets?
We start with a roll of 36 oz loop (or short cut-pile if that's what the customer wants) carpet, 40" wide. There are no pre-molded sections involved. It's all one piece all the way across. One for the front and one for the rear. Slices here and there for all the different contours in the floor, depending on the vehicle. All raw edges get carpet binding sewn on, except where it goes under the sill plates.
Dynamat-type products are installed first over bare floors. Then jute carpet padding, cut in the same manner as the carpet. Holes for shifters, seat mounts, seat belts, and pedals are opened up while the first 2 layers are being installed. Same holes are then covered up with carpet, then located after ALL the carpet is glued down. No mistakes that way.
When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.
