That's exactly how I do carpet in those situations, but I use a different insulation. I use a product from Thermozite that has no foil on it. It is about 5/16" thick and 36" wide and is very pliable. Wool carpet is great. It wears like iron and is naturally resistant to a lot of things. I just ordered a pre-formed carpet set for a '47 Olds from one of my suppliers, and it was only $585. It's not square weave, but it is all wool. I thought that was very reasonable. BTW John, was that V-8 medallion original to the car's dash or did you add it?
