SN 95 Carpet From LMR and ACC
Well my fellow SN95 mustang lovers, I purchased a carpet kit for my 95 GTS from LateModelRestoration.com. I was very impressed with the service and support from the gents down there in Texas. However, I am not overly impressed with ACC (Auto Custom Carpets) who is the manufacturer of the carpet I ordered. While I understood there is some trimming involved, I was not prepared for that install, plus there was no instructions, no message from ACC, not even a "Good Luck Sucker" written on the box.
I figured as the 94-95 interior layouts are the same that maybe the section wrapping the lower portion of the dash would fit correctly, the hole for the shifter and e-brake would already be cut or at least marked where to cut. Instead I took the plunge and cut down the center about a foot, laid one side in place, and marked where I would need to cut more. I ended up cutting down the center right to the back of the e-brake. While yes the console will cover that cut, it seems to me that ACC is lazy in their design of this carpet.
I am very impressed with the quality of the carpet, the padding in the correct places, and the formed humps and curves; I don't feel I got my money's worth. Over a hundred bucks for carpet I now have to spend time trimming, and cutting holes. Yes, it sounds like I am whining, and maybe I am a little. I just feel that for the money, I think ACC could provide a little better engineering. Even marking some reference points to center the piece, or even DIRECTIONS stating what would need to be done.
Ok, I'm done ranting.
Has anyone else installed carpet in their SN95? Got any pointers for tomorrow when I start trimming?
