Re: Carpet with console
Don't know if this will help you or not. When we install carpet here in the shop, especially with a floor shifter, we only SLIT the carpet wherever something comes through it. Just enough so it doesn't interfere with the operation of the shifter mechanism, cable, or whatever. Then after the console or shifter plate is installed, you can make the slit into a small hole if needed.
Same with seat mounting bolts, seat belt bolts, gas pedal, dimmer switch, etc.
When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.
