Speedway Tech Talk - Carpet & Sill Plates
Pat brought out a 2 piece carpet kit for a 1967-1969 Chevy Camaro. The kits are properly made with correct contours for the transmission tunnel and foot well. Some portions may still need to be cut to fit. This is usually more just of a finish trim on the edges, but it is best to wait until the carpet is in to make that cut. Since these carpets do ship rolled up in a box, Pat suggests laying it out in the sun for a few hours to soften up and smooth it out. This will help greatly not only with installation but also with getting the wrinkles from shipment out.
