So with further inspection looks like the original carpets are a “cut and sewn” product with maybe molding on the rear piece for the driveline hump.

Checked the new carpet set That came from SMS for another car here and I was in error saying it was molded and ACC. That info was from speaking with SMS. But it is not molded. The rear piece has two sewn in seams to cause a fit to the driveline tunnel rather than molded. It has sewn trimmed edges where appropriate to overlap/trim the rear set. It is continuous over the tranny hump, absent under much of the seat. Lots of trimming required to duplicate factory set, but will be very close once fitted.

Trim Parts evidently sold their carpet div to ACC so that is not an option For cut and sewn since ACC doesn’t show any cut and sewn option, bought them to do away with competition I guess and did away the option.

Will be talking with ACC Monday.
