Finally getting around to installing my carpet. Didn’t realize it until I took a look at a friends coupe but There’s a big difference to stock. I know those of you who have done carpet must know this and wonder if I have the right carpet and if so how did you handle it?

Stock In the coupe,pictures att, and another parts car convertible we have is a two piece carpet set with some finish trimmed edges with sewn “tape” where front piece overlaps and “trims” the rear piece. It has a full relief for the console, just tucking under the bottom edge and not going over the top at all. There is no full carpeting under the seat, seats bolt to the steel, not through the carpet.

The carpet ACC supplied is a big one piece of carpet that covers front and rear including under seats, over top of console area …

Pics are full set, rear, and the front rotated 180 out from the rear. The round relief being the steering column. Showing the big gap for the center console on auto floor console

Looks like the Trim Parts carpet set above is two piece?

So did they send the wrong carpet or is that what you have to deal with?
