I am beginning to think it is either a different carpet or multi piece the floor and firewall. I would have procured the square weave from either Lebaron Bonney or Bill Hirsh. Does anyone have recommended sources in New England for quality auto carpet or types/brands of carpet to purchase?
The picture below is of my car with German square weave carpet. I did purchase mine from Bill Hirsch and have been pleased with it.

As you can see from the picture of my car, it is cut and sewn. I do not think you are going to form it at all.
