What's in the Box
(1) Floor Carpet w/ Mass Backing & 1/2" Jute Padding
Better Sound Deadening & Insulation with Mass Back Carpet
What is Mass Back? Mass Back is a tough, rubber layer between the carpet and the jute insulation that increases form and rigidity, while decreasing road noise. The rubber is composed of ethylene vinyl acetate and is spread 40mil thick to add moldability, sound deadening, and insulation. Mass Back carpet more closely duplicates the original carpet that your Mustang came with from the factory.
Mass Back Carpet vs. Standard Replacement Carpet
All of the standard Mustang carpet on our website is priced to be made with polyethylene backing. This is the same carpet backing that is offered by just about every Mustang carpet retailer in the industry. Poly back carpet is a more economical option and is the most common option for aftermarket Mustang carpet. Please note that whether you choose standard poly back or Mass Back, the choice does not affect the quality of the carpet, or the way that the carpet will fit your Mustang.
Dark Charcoal Mass Back Carpet for Mustang Coupe & Convertible
Replacing the carpet in your S197 Mustang is one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve the conditions of your interior. It is a simple, one person installation and can be done in just one day. Our high quality ACC Mass Back carpet is pre-formed and molded to fit your Mustang for a seamless, OE look. Carpet comes with the factory style heel pad and will re-carpet the entire passenger area from the firewall to the back seat. Installation will require cutting for bolt holes and trimming of excess material.
ACC pre-formed, molded Mustang floor carpet is made of heavy weight 16oz cut-pile carpeting combined with 40oz jute padding. This combination makes for a beautiful, long-wearing carpet. This weight coupled with a factory style backing gives your new Mustang carpet a "mold memory". Once it’s installed, it continues to shape itself to the contours of your floor. Remember, when you take it out of the carton, the weight of the carpet and padding will tend to cause it to "flatten out" but once it’s on the floor of your Mustang, it will return to shape.
Jute sound deadening material works in conjunction with the Mass Back to help insulate your Mustang from road noise and engine heat. ACC jute sound deadening meets federal standards for flammability retardation. It’s the perfect beginning when replacing your Mustang's carpet and to increase its durability.
Cut Pile Carpet Style
As is the case with many latemodel vehicles the latemodel Ford Mustang came from the factory with cut-pile style carpet. Cut pile carpet is a form of carpet that involves a strategic cut of the loops that are created during the weaving of a carpet. The loops are cut to the same height and allowed to tuft slightly. This approach gives the carpet pile the appearance of softness and often appears to be very dense and provides a cushion for the foot.

Latemodelrestoration.com is your source for all your interior carpeting needs. Go ahead, pull it out of the box, unroll it. You'll want to give yourself a couple of days before you get ready to install it. It even helps to let it sit in the sun for about a whole day just to let some of those wrinkles work their way out.
How does the new carpet compare to your stock? While the density of the carpet and the backing are very similar, to jute padding on the stock carpet, however, is quite a bit denser and thicker. The new carpet comes pre-molded for your floor pan, and even has the heel pad sealed into place. The new carpet will not have holes cut in it. What I recommend doing is laying your old carpet on top of your new carpet and tracing out where you need to cut with the marker.
The standard poly-back is your normal replacement. The mass-back, however, is an upgrade and takes the standard poly-back carpet and adds a thick rubber-bonded backing that cuts down on interior noise and reduces interior temperatures. Don't forget whenever you pick out a new carpet for your Mustang or Lightning, go ahead and pick up a matching set of floor mats, hatch carpet, or even coupe trunk carpet.

Product was ordered, shipped and received in 2 days! I bought this carpet to replace the stock gray carpet in my 2007 GT. The carpet, padding and backing are very heavy duty, and the rubber coating is very thick and is something the stock carpet didnt come with. Due to the thickness of the padding and rubber coating, a cold weather install is going to be extremely difficult due to the compressions and bends in the carpet that were induced while inside the box/packaging, Installation will require a VERY warm day, and possibly a heat gun to remove the many creases and folds induced by the packaging.
However, the carpet is very high quality and worth every penny asked. Just be aware of the extra effort that will be required to shape the carpet during the install.
