So I'm going to be painting my interior black because I'm tired of the tan color. I'm having trouble with taking off the middle center piece. I took off the 2 bolts that go on the top but it's not budgin. Am I missing something?

You have to tug hard to get the e brake boot off. You will need to pull up hard to clear the handle.

It's not done yet, we first scrubbed at the panels, then hit it with primer them rustomleum plastic restorer which is what step we are at now. Tomorw we will finish it off with a krylon gloss enamel to make it pop.

No I'm getting new seats. I'm looking for 03-04 cobra ones and I think I found someone selling them. I just have to get them at a good price.

I just installed the carpet they sell. The front fit well. It was the back that I some fit issues. Particularly, the part under the rear seat. Definitely took some trimming.

I'll see what I can do. Th biggest problem that I had was with the carpet bunching up over the trans tunnel. It's not that noticeable but that stuff bothers me. Lol. Other than that, it fit reasonably well. I believe LMR sells a carpet that has an oem style heavyweight rubber backing. The backing on the AM carpet is much lighter than oem.

Carpet will definitely need to be laid out in the sun to get it to lie flat. All capret will need some trimming, just make sure to use some glue on the floor and the back of the carpet and let them both get tacky before installing. I've installed quite a few sets of carpet from ACC and they all just take a little trimming to get them to fit correctly. The upgrade you get over the stock carpet is definitely worth it though!

Definitely DEFINITELY get the carpet from LMR that has the mass back rubber on the underside. Makes a world of difference with sound deadening and heat deflection. I had both kind in my fox body and the mass backed one is definitely the one to go with.

I ordered a used one off eBay from an 03-04 Cobra for 60. I figured since I'm always going to be stepping on them I would get a good used set, but thanks for the info. Next I will be painting the headliner tmrw and will begin my homemade back seat delete
