Looking for tips - carpet installation
Working on a very stock, 1990 LX convertible. It needed new carpet badly - the sun had faded it into 300 different colors. So I've gutted the car and removed the old carpet and the new ACC carpet (with rubberized mass back) is on the way. I've cleaned the floorpans, etc and you could eat off them. So my question is, what tips or installation secrets would you recommend for me?
I saw a video online where a dude used an old soldering iron to burn holes through the carpet instead of just cutting. It sealed up the hole and prevented the screws from pulling a thread from the carpet while installing seats, etc.
Any other tricks you might recommend? Much appreciated!
