Very nice.

obviously you are now mobile, and I see no brake booster - what setup did you adopt, and are you happy/what is your experience with the results?

I'm at this stage in my renovation and wondering if you can elaborate on how you got the carpet down. Would like to hear which pieces you used adhesive vs fasteners on - especially the ones that need to follow contours like the long pieces that tuck under the stainless steel sill covers and those over the tunnel.

Looks like she came out nicely - awesome build!

Morning, I didn't take a resto approach - so first off don't forget that!

I put down some sound / heat shield first which stuck to the floor. I then painted over that and then used carpet adhesive to put the carpet down. I needed a lot of heat to mold / shape things but i think that's always true. I've done carpet in a few different cars and it never sits down perfectly.

One thing i would NOT do again is paint the heat shield. I did that so that i woldn't see the shiny stuff in any carpet gaps. That aspect worked - but the adhesive didn't stick very well in the end. If i were to do it over, i would only paint the edges black and leave everything else unpainted.

Gotcha. So you used plain old carpet adhesive from the hardware store, and aside from the paint lifting from the heat barrier, it was a good solution?

its even less cheap but so far I've used 3M's "Super Yellow Trim Adhesive" and its been very good at bonding dissimilar materials and has a nice controllable spray pattern and builds up thick rather than soaking thru. Absent other advice I'd probably use the same on the carpet - it just occurred tome that maybe plain carpet adhesive would be better.

As stated elsewhere...I don't think carpet, at least the pieces under the seats, should be glued down. If it ever gets wet it is much better to be able to remove and dry/clean.
