    I thought when you borrow those samples from the carpet stores, they usually expect them back!! Laughing Sounds like you used carpet seam tape to hold the squares together. That's quite a process!!

    Looks good! On my old van I put similar carpeted runners alongside the paneling on the ceiling. As I recall, the paneling wasn't quite wide enough and the runners made a good way to finish off the edges and help hold the paneling up.

    Thank's guys . I worked many long hr to get it done for the car show here in town , but didn't make it. The carpet is glued on the walls,& back doors(on plywood) I stapled it on the benches(oh yea there are 2 door on top of it)The 2 things in back corners are also cabinets, to hold all the stuff you need for a Early. I seamed the carpet together on doghouse lid Its got 2 layers of foam under it. Then glued it on the sides(2 day project outside),started to rain in middle of it) Yea Rich its like 4 or 5 in short on both sides makes for good place to run wires,without taking whole thing down. I glued 2 layers of 1/4 plywood together then wraped it with carpet.Kind of a pain to put in by your self

    Kakster, I didn't remember to post on you question on the tires & wheels . I got 14x8 on the front with (I think) 4 1/2 in bs, and 15 X10 with 5 in bs on rear . The tires are like a G-60 on front & a L 50 on rear. It drives nice & they don't rub. Oh they are like Chevy rally wheels , I did finally put on the Hats on . Time for new(er) pics
