(1) Floor Carpet w/ Mass Backing & 1/2" Jute Padding
Your Lightning Deserves the Best
The SVT Ford Lightning is a desirable, limited edition production vehicle, that deserves the highest quality aftermarket parts. That is why we offer Mass Back carpet from ACC.
Top of the Line Sound Deadening & Insulation with Mass Back Carpet
What is Mass Back? Mass Back is a tough, rubber layer formed between the carpet and the jute insulation that increases form and rigidity, while decreasing road noise. The rubber is a 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 Lightning came with from the factory.
Mass Back Carpet for SVT Lightnings
Replacing the carpet in your Lightning 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 limited edition pickup for a seamless, OE look. Installation will require cutting for bolt holes and trimming of excess material.
ACC pre-formed, molded Lightning 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 Lightning 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 SVT, it will return to shape.
Jute sound deadening material works in conjunction with the Mass Back to help insulate your Lightning from road noise and engine heat. ACC jute sound deadening meets federal standards for flammability retardation. It’s the perfect beginning when replacing your Lightning's carpet and to increase its durability.
Cut Pile Carpet Style
As is the case with many late model vehicles the late model Ford Lightning 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.

Based on the one review of how well it fit I thought this would work well in my 95 Lightning. The carpet I received was easily a 1.5-2 feet too wide from front to back and probably 1 foot too wide side to side. I knew going in that some trimming was required, but that much is crazy. I was really worried about cutting deep in to the bend for the trans tunnel and getting the shape right where the carpet meets the firewall.
Luckily Eddy and LMR are awesome, Eddy contacted the manufacturer, but they were no help. LMR took care of me on the return and refund so this review is in no way a bad reflection on LMR. They took care of me and I will be back to purchase other (non carpet) items!!!

The new carpet in my 1994 lightning looks awesome, was a great fit just like the factory piece.
Everytime I have delt with LateModel, it seems to get better and better. I have had all positive experiences which is much more than i can say about Summit, or American Muscle. I like the mom and pop shop feel i get when i deal with LateModel. We had a family buisness turning wrenches and a huge part of our success was customer service. Specifically treating every single female as how we would want our sister of mother treated when going to a buisness. We were always more than fair, accommodating and made sure to make all of our customers leave with a smile. And it worked. 30 years later my brother is still in buisness. Yesterday, I got that same type of treatment by Ian. Thank you Ian, you really went above and beyond like this was your personal buisness. Late Model, you just def locked in another lifelong customer thanks to Ian. Semper Fi
