Why You need Two
The carpet we use in
the moulding process, regardless of style is produced on a
roll that is1m wide. This is also true of original car carpets
from cars of the 50's through 90's. As a car is 1.8 m or
larger in width this necessitates running the carpet across
the car for moulding. This is also done this way because of
the transmission tunnel being much larger in the front than
rear a better fitting carpet is produced. This means that the
front carpet piece finishes just under the front of the seats
as shown in the diagram at left.
The rear piece is then from just under this, (small overlap
making a nice join), to the rear and in the case of a sedan or
wagon two small tabs might need to be sewn on to extend down
the sides of the rear seats.
Ford ute/van carpets are actually sedan carpets with a small
(about 10 cm) piece cut off and Holden utes/vans are slightly
different as there is a separate reinforcement across the rear
of the cab.
Thus there is 3.6-3.8 m of carpet used no matter which body
style and for utes/vans a little bit cut off or on
sedans/coupes/wagons a little bit sewn on
If your rear carpet
is in great nic and you only want the piece from dash to seats
we can of course sell it to you but can't of course guarantee
it will exactly match the rear.
