The thickness of the foam should be just like the original panel, probably 1/8" or 1/4". The carpet is available online at Auto Custom Carpets ( ACC: your authority for custom automotive carpet, floor mats, and more ), or other places like Your Auto Trim, and Rochford Supply.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
