Installing new molded carpet

Ive installed carpet in my 66 Chevelle and 67 gto and the console fits over the carpet.Ive seen a few posts where some guys have the carpet that does not sit on the carpet???If it only goes 2 or 3 inches under the rear seat seems long that it will go under the the front seats??Help needed Thanks

You can get the original 2 piece carpet, or a single one piece carpet. I like the 1 piece carpet. You can get it in either like or loop. ACC is where I got mine.

Re: Installing new molded carpet

If you go further back on the rear youíll never get the bottom rear seat installed.

Re: Installing new molded carpet

I just installed the one piece ACC carpet:

The carpet goes just up to the rear seat floor brackets.

It looks like on the 2 piece a guy will have to cut a lot off because the front of the carpet goes under front seat brackets???

No. The seat sliders mount directly to the floor. You cut a flap in the carpet and that flap
then covers the sliders. That's how the factory did it.

I added a shot of the back seat area showing where the carpet ends. I havenít reinstalled the seat yet, so it may need to be trimmed, but thatís the out-of-the-box length.
