If you own a '79 to '93 Fox Mustang, more than likely your carpet is showing signs of fading, staining, and might even smell like an old gym sock. Replacing your car can seem like quite a daunting task because you do have to remove a good portion your interior to even get your old carpet out. Then you have to go through and carefully mark, and then cut, holes in your brand new carpet.
Luckily it's not all that bad, although it is time consuming. We can show you all the steps that you'll need to do to get the job done. Now this is reproduction carpet. It will not fit exactly like the factory. But if you put in the effort this carpet will lay down, look, and smell a lot better than that stained stinky carpet you have right now.
First things you're going to want to do is watch our seat removal video and our console removal video to get those out of the way so you can get your old carpet out on the floor. Unbox your new carpet and unfold it. And work your way around forming it back into shape. The warmer the temperature is the easier your job will be.
Place your new carpet face down and lay your old carpet over the top. Position it as closely as possible to the new carpet and use a marker to trace all of the openings for the shifter, emergency brake, seats, and seat belts. These will be close, not exact. When you start cutting cut small. You can cut larger once the carpet is in the car.
With all of your holes rough cut, lay the carpet out in the floor pan of the car. Tuck it up under the dash and along the firewall. You may have to remove your dead pedal if you're cars equipped with one. Starting along the transmission tunnel, enlarge your cut outs as needed to fit properly.
Make sure and pull through all of your wiring harnesses. From underneath the car you could locate can cut out the rear seat track bolt holes. Install your lower shifter boot if you have a manual transmission. Finish working your way around locating and enlarging all the needed holes for your seats and seat belts. If you find yourself with any randomly wrinkles you can use the hairdryer to help smooth those out.
For just a few hours of your time, you can drastically improve the looks, and the smell, of your Fox Mustang. Pick up your new carpet and floor mats at latemodelrestoration.com.
