1937 Ford Pickup

Dan & Anyone else, Do any of you know if any of the edges of the carpet for this truck has to have binding (especially around the doors)? The fella has cut pile carpeting to put in it but it's terribly hard to sew binding on it. The vinyl wants to "creep" as you sew, I guess because it is so thick. Any suggestions as to the best way to do it? (Or a way to do it)? He basically just brought me all of the interior and I never got to see the way the carpet was handled.

Thanks for your time!

A 37 Ford Pickup would never have had carpet, just rubber floor mats.
I would think that you would want to put some metal trim over the edges of the carpet at the door openings, and that would be all you'd need. You could use any of the aluminum threshold strips available at any hardware store, or modify some pieces from a four door car to fit.

If you choose to use binding and the pile of the carpet is too thick you can bevel the edge with scissors so there is less bulk under the binding.

I probably could have gotten a little bit more creative but here is one low dollar method. I used a piece of aluminum tread molding from Lowe's or Home Depot as a door sill plate on my roadster. The only thing to watch out for is what I used is not flexable.

Thanks Dan. I just thought it was a perfect example of what you were suggesting and the picture was handy. As always your advise is right on.

You're welcome. Is that square weave carpet?

Yes. It came from Bill Hirsch. I hesitated to order it due to the price but it has really worn well.

Sorry, I forgot that if I deleted it in Photo-bucket it would disappear from the forum. Here is another one.
