Molded Carpet Question

I'm buying new carpet for my Caprice and searched about it on this forum, I got a price of 92.95 here http://www.autocarpetdeals.com/Merch...ry_Code=ChevA9 anyone know if this company sells a good product?

I would rather give my business to a member of the site(kriskustoms?) if they sold what I need.

hey ghetto, i don't know anything about this company but a friend of mine is in the auto upholstery business and he said to stay away from the one piece carpets and buy the ones that come in two pieces (front and back) i'm going to order mine from classic industries he said they have good stuff and deals with them a lot. most of the major catalogs offer their carpets for about $125 give or take a few. they probably all get them from the same manufacturer anyway. remember to let the carpet sit in the sun for a while to warm up before installing it. you may also have to use a hair drier or heat gun to heat up a few spots to get it to fit just right. and that is considered normal because they don't always fit perfect. good luck and i hope i helped.

I used Auto Custom Carpets www.accmats.com
Very good product and very easy to deal with. I have heard nothing but good comments about them! I'm sure you could find cheeper...but I don't think you would want to.

Yes Auto Custom Carpets www.accmats.com is a very good company. Their stuff fits. They were originally a Michigan co. My father helped design and build some of their original molds from the seventies..

I remember that an early Buick Riviera used to be an impossible car to fit with molded carpets. Out of three companies I tried they were the only company that fit.

So, what did you end up with?

Hello Ghetto,

I've got a '79 2-door Caprice, I'm getting new carpet, what did you end up with and how did it turn out?

Thanks!
