Installing the carpet and console on new floor pans. Does the carpet go under the front console bracket or was it cut around at the factory. Was there any cut outs on the front carpet, except for the holes. For speed it would make sense that the front carpet was installed as one piece then the console and seats. I have always cut around the bracket on other cars.
Pretty certain the carpet was installed after the console bracket from the factory. Have seen some original pics with console removed and it wasn't pretty. Very little carpet remained under the console, IIRC.
I cut a l------l pattern in carpet to fit over the bracket.
