Carpet Guard Installation

Hey guys, finishing up a minor restoration and the carpet guard was original held on by two bolts with nuts on the backside (had to have two people to get the stupid thing off, one in the car and one under) and big fender washers. Was the original guard held on by screwing the correct screws directly into the firewall? If so, my firewall has been drilled out to fit the bolts, so I'll have to tack something to the firewall to screw them into. Or is there something I'm missing?

Thanks everyone!

They were just two large sheet metal screws coated in wax.

Re: Carpet Guard Installation

Wally you could use Nutserts. They could be installed from the passenger compartment. It doesn't take much to hold that carpet guard.

Re: Carpet Guard Installation

Classic Industries latest catalog (page 7) describes the two screws as "rubber dipped". They also have plastic push fasteners that appear to be larger in diameter.

By the way, I loosened my steering wheel column to install my PS unit along with the new rag joint. I forgot to remove the repop carpet guard and the thing shattered!

Re: Carpet Guard Installation

The plastic fasteners (P/N 3764424 on classic industries) are to hold the firewall insulation in place correct? Or do the screws thread into the plastic fastener and the plastic fastener pops into the firewall? The AIM only shows the screws going through the carpet guard if I recall correctly, but hard to tell what they're going into.

Re: Carpet Guard Installation

It maybe that the plastic push fasteners are the molly for the screws. So you may be right. The plastic push tabs hold the insulation in place and the screws then go into them keeping everything neat and secure. Just guessing but makes sense.

Re: Carpet Guard Installation

They screw right into the floorpan. There is no plastic insert, that's why they the correct screws are coated with the wax to prevent water from leaking through.
